  • Environmentally friendly soil stabilizer introduced to the Dominican Republic

    Building effective and long lasting roads in the Dominican Republic has proven to be difficult in the past due to high annual rainfall, high temperatures and the soil type predominantly found on the island. Recently a demonstration was performed on a stretch of road at the Naco Golf & Country Club near Santo Domingo with EarthZyme, a 100% environmentally friendly soil stabilizer that is ...

  • Reinforcement of soil by plant roots

    Landslides have devastating impacts across the globe resulting in the loss of life and the destruction of billions of dollars in infrastructure. Soil erosion from wind and water threatens food production, pollutes the environment, and can make living in major cities such as Beijing almost unbearable during dust storms. Just like the great dust bowl of the 1930s, many instances of soil erosion and ...

  • Precompression stress in soils

    The precompression stress as a factor to assess the mechanical stability of soils is predictable by using pedotransfer functions. Over the past decades arable soils have been deteriorated because of the heavy machinery on the farm. Increase loads enhance subsoil compaction which is mostly irreversible. As a consequence of this deformation, the soil productivity decreases while the erodibility ...

  • Soil nailing is ideal for tight spaces or areas

    According to OSHA, excavation is one of the most hazardous construction operations. The greatest risk for worker fatalities is from cave-ins. But excavation is a necessary part of many construction projects. There are several different options for earth retention during excavation. The decision is typically made by the Project Team based on project logistics – how deep ...

  • Soil carbon storage is not always influenced by tillage practices

    The practice of no-till has increased considerably during the past 20 yr. Soils under no-till usually host a more abundant and diverse biota and are less prone to erosion, water loss, and structural breakdown than tilled soils. Their organic matter content is also often increased and consequently, no-till is proposed as a measure to mitigate the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide ...

  • Modern farming practices: a short term solution to soil erosion

    New research shows that the damaging effects of soil erosion can be partly avoided by using modern farming methods, such as the use of fertilisers, but at a cost. An increase in the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides, for example, is likely to have an impact on local ecosystems.  A team of European scientists, lead by the Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium, have developed a ...
