Use of anionic polyacrylamide (PAM) as an erosion control soil amendment has been studied at the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), National Soil Erosion Research Lab since the early 1990s. An initial field experiment in Indiana using simulated rainfall on a sloping silt loam soil found that 20 kg ha -1 of PAM could reduce sediment loss by more than 60% from the first storm event from an agricultural silt loam soil, as well as provide control from rill… CONTINUE READING
