Erosion Control on Highway Backslopes

During 1959, research was continued by the Agronomy Department in cooperation with the Iowa Highway Commission on vegetative establishment and erosion control on highway backslopes (Project 1010). The work was continued at previously established sites and also several new experiments were initiated during the year. The work will be discussed for each separate experiment and location in this report. These are: Topsoil Replacement Study, Chariton, Iowa; Mulch Experiment on Sandy Backslope, Granger, Iowa; Phosphate Rate Study on Calcareous Loess, Moville, Iowa; and Fertilizer Rate Trials on Kansan Till, Seymour, Iowa. Attached at the end of this report is the following report: Highway Backslope Research - Report on Agronomic Studies, 1954 -1956, Paul Peperzak and W. D. Shrader.
