Title: Techniques for establishing vegetation for long-term erosion control on disturbed slopes in Alabama

Author: Dougherty, M.; Baharanyi, A.; Guertal, B.; Grace, J. III;

Date: 2010

Source: In: Proceedings Environmental connection 10, proceedings of conference 41. Dallas, TX: International Erosion Control Association: Steamboat Springs, CO. 1-12.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: One year results from 21 outdoor erosion and sediment control plots constructed in 2008 on a 4:1 slope are presented. The study objectives were to evaluate; 1) the effects of incorporating lime and fertilizer on establishment of bermudagrass on steep slopes, 2) the differences in bermudagrass establishment as a function of temporary covers including wheat straw, erosion control blankets, and hydromulch, 3) the effect of PAM with hydromulch on establishment of bermudagrass, and 4) the influence of above variables on runoff, sediment delivery and turbidity compared to control plots with no cover at planting.

Keywords: erosion and sediment control, mulches, fertilizer incorporation
