The processing of coir has been made ecofriendly and involves minimum amount of drudgery due to the research works carried out by the Central Coir Research Institute of Coir Board during the past few years. This has added a new dimension to the development of coir products in the field of geotextiles as coir possesses high strength and biodegradability to add to its advantages over other natural and synthetic fibres. This paper-reports the works done by Coir Board to promote the use of coir geotextiles in the field of soil erosion control.
