AN APPRAISAL OF TWO QUALITATIVE FIELD TRIALS COMPARING METHODS OF EROSION CONTROL ON EARTH SLOPES

Excessive erosion on steep slopes can cause considerable damage and pose problems of slope stability. In two trials, carried out under different conditions, a number of treatments aimed at producing vegetal cover produced variable results. The following important factors, effecting plant growth on slopes, emerged from the literature and the two trials: slope material, nature of slope, fertilization, choice of plant species with reference to the time of seeding and climatic region, the need for mulching, and consideration of future maintenance. /Author/TRRL/
