dc.description.abstract Escalating cost of petroleum based geo-synthetic products and concern for environment have motivated researchers to explore alternate natural based geo-amendments. Lignocellulose based natural fibers, geotextiles and biochar derived from plant have been explored as alternative soil amendment material. Eichorrnia Crasipes popularly known as water hyacinth (WH) is one of the world’s most invasive plant species which causes various ecological problems as well as blocks water bodies. The management of this weed produces a lot of waste bio-mass with relatively no usage. The current study finds motivation from the aforementioned problem of waste management and need for eco-friendly amendment material; to explore WH as a potential bio-material in the form of discrete fibers, geotextiles and biochar. en_US
