Stabilization of Silt Clay Soil Using Molasses for Small Dam Embankment Construction as inner Zone

The Agriculture sector contributes 45% of Tanzania’s GDP and about 30% of its export earnings, while employing over 80% of the nation’s work-force (National Irrigation Master Plan, 2002). The government of Tanzania is investing more in rainwater harvesting technology such as construction of earth fill dam in the country to continue supporting agricultural production. This research work was aimed to stabilize silt clay soil using molasses for construction of small earthfill dam embankment as inner zone.
