Abstract/Contents:"Several field experiments were established to determine ways of increasing the stability of soils with the use of various organic mulch materials and chemical binding agents. Uniform seed, fertilizer and lime were applied with 2-4 replications at each location. Treatment differences were determined by plant populations, plant heights, estimated yield indices, general appearances, and estimates of sheet and rill erosion. A wide variety of mulches were suitable for temporary soil stabilization and for establishment of vegetation during favorable seasons. However, during the summer and winter dormant seasons only small grain straw, at 4480 kg/h and woodchips at 402 to 765 hl/ha (each tacked with 2.1 I RC-250 asphalt/m2) were effective for providing extended erosion control (up to eight months). Chemical binders (chemical agents sprayed onto the soil surface to provide a degree of cohesiveness or stability to the soil) improved the effectiveness of woodcellulose fiber during the first four months. Woodcellulose fiber mulches (ground woodpulp).gave better erosion control than paper mulch (ground cardboard) when used at 1680 kg/ha. Chemical binders used in the test were Curasol (a high polymer plastic dispersion), Landlock (reactive polymer solution), Tera tack and Aquatain (pectin materials), Erocom (gypsum and fiber), Aerospray (a polymeric solution). Comparisons were made among the materials with and without woodfiber cellulose mulch."
