STUDIES INTO THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOWING TURF AT THE SIDES OF MOTORWAYS

UNTERSUCHUNGEN ZUR ENTWICKLUNG VON RASENSAATEN AN AUTOBAHNEN

OVER A PERIOD OF SIX YEARS THE AUTHORS HAVE FOLLOWED THE CHANGES IN THE PLANT LIFE ON THE HARD SHOULDERS OF MOTORWAYS IN THE RHINELAND SCHIEFERGEBIRGE (SHALE) HILLS WITHIN THE DARMSTADT AREA FROM THE SOWING OF THE TURF MIXTURE TO THE FORMATION OF THE GRASS COVER. IT INVOLVED THE USE OF 12 TURF MIXTURES WITH 15 TYPES OF GRASS. THE SOILS RANGED FROM SAND OVER SANDY CLAY TO CLAY AND SHALLOW STONES. THE STUDIES CONFIRM THAT FOR THE SAME SOWING MIXTURE TURF OF A DIFFERENT STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED DEPENDING ON THE SOIL AND THE TIME OF SOWING.
