ABSTRACT:

Geotextiles are lightly fabric made from jute, coco coir or any natural plant fbers. Geotextiles a natural product are eco-friendly and biodegradable in nature and act as useful ameliorative to eliminate the soil related constrains of crop production. Bio deterioration of cellulose fiber results from the reduction at die polymerization leading to loss textile strength. It also helps to protect the most vital natural resources of soil and water from various degradation processes by erosion of soil and runoff water. It plays a vital role in increasing moisture holding capacity in soil, improving water uptake and drainage capacity. Application of suitable ameliorative thus necessitates for improving various soil conditions towards increasing the crop productivity.

KEYWORDS:

Geotextile, Soil properties, Mulching and Soil Erosion.
