Use of polymers and biopolymers for water retaining and soil stabilization in arid and semiarid regions
Journal of Taibah University for Science
The use of polymers as a soil-stabilizer additive has expanded significantly in agricultural use to control soil degradation and desertification and also to improve arid and semi arid soils. This research was conducted to determine the effects of different synthetic polymers and biopolymers at low concentration (0.03 % -1%) at arid and semi arid soil of North Africa. Polystyrene, Polyacrylamide; Cellulose and the mixture of Polyacrylamide with other polymers were characterized by viscosity,doi:10.1016/s1658-3655(12)60022-3 fatcat:7vcbd7ry25bxdolpfcgn7rusr4
