Better Planet

Substantial road networks intersect the vast agricultural fields where the crops and livestock critical to our survival are raised. The majority of these roads are unpaved, meaning their proper management is critical in getting all the valuable agricultural products to market as efficiently as possible. Our soil stabilization and road dust control solutions are designed to support more sustainable management of these road networks to allow for not only higher performance roads in all weather, but all while having substantially less impact on surrounding livestock and crops due to the reduced dust emissions after roads have been treated. Since this network of roads is so substantial around the world, it gives us a rare opportunity to introduce new sustainable best practices that will make an impact in the communities that house agricultural operations and will allow these projects to focus on CSR initiatives through their work with Cypher.

How can we reduce the impact of road dust on roadside vegetation on farmers’ fields?

Studies have suggested that a car driving down one mile of road, once a day for one year, can lead to one ton of dust being deposited 500 feet on either side of the road median. This dust can coat the leaves of agricultural crops, leading to a reduction in photosynthesis and reduced crop yields, lending to the need for an effective dust suppressant. Traditional chloride based road dust suppressants can be quite corrosive, and have actually been labeled as toxic, as per section 64 of the 1999 CEPA (Canadian Environmental Protection Act). Therefore they can be quite harmful to roadside vegetation. DUST/BLOKR® was designed as a non-corrosive and environmentally friendly alternative to chlorides for road dust control, while being very competitively priced, having no negative impact on surrounding crops whatsoever.
