research -- Development of Biological Methods of Dust Suppression in the Antelope Valley

Posted: 30 May 2007 17:49:10
The Air Resources Board announces the release of the final
report
titled, “Research into the Development of Biological Methods of
Dust Suppression in the Antelope Valley”. Researchers at San
Diego State University studied cost effective means to
revegetate barren land, with the goal developing guidance for
land owners to control dust by establishing stable cover with
native plants. Results showed that a stable plant cover can be
created on abandoned farmland, that the unusually high salt and
nutrient load in fallow farmland (compared to undisturbed
desert) generally favored plants of the genus Atriplex, and that
those plants generally benefited from mulching and deep
irrigation. In addition, comparison across soil types showed
that site-specific conditions alter the degree of success and
indicate that optimum species choice should be based on local
soil conditions. For more details and study results, the final
report is available at

This project was supported by the Air Resources Board under
contract number 01-339.  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions
or recommendations expressed in this report are those of the
