Title: Grass seeding as a control for roadbank erosion.

Author: Wollum, A.G. II.;

Date: 1962

Source: PNW Old Series Research Note No. 218, p. 1-5

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Grass, seeded on a steep roadcut in western Oregon, reduced erosion but caused increased surface runoff during a 3-year period of observation. These results were obtained at H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest from a study designed to measure effectiveness of grass in controlling soil erosion from exposed roadbanks. Additional measurements for varying soil types will be needed before conclusions reported here can be considered generally applicable for the Douglas-fir region.
