Abstract

Soil stabilization for wind erosion control is now possible by using chemical sprays. More tests are needed to determine the optimum dilution and application rates but the amount of spray to apply depends basically upon whether the stabilized surface must bear foot traffic. The economic feasibility of such wind erosion control methods depends upon the potential of the soil needing stabilization.
