What is being claimed is:

1. A soil conditioner comprising a corn cob waste derived cellulose microfibrils biopolymer additive, wherein the soil conditioner is structured to modify a soil to water interface so that the composition controls erosion or water infiltration.



The present invention relates to soil conditioning with flocculating agents, coagulants and stabilizers. The current invention comprises a biopolymer soil conditioner based on cellulose microfibrils of specific charge, size and length to span between large numbers of soil particles. The biopolymer composition may be used as soil-binding biomaterials that, either...
