Water usually works pretty well for controlling dust.

If you want to really do a nice job spread crushed stone. Then you won't be rolling over dirt and you've solved the problem of dust.

how about using MgCl or CaCl and then lihgtly watering it in. the theory is that they will then absorb the moisture in the air and kind lock the soil up or help prevent dust...

good luck...

we have out of town guys doing dust control and they use one of many products derived from pine pitch and rosins . some of it has a orange scent like they use citric acid in it too .I would quess a good street department head or roads supervisor would know a little about dust control .

We have a dirt road coming into the shop. Just installed a zone of sprinklers that comes on every other hr for 9 minutes. Works great.

As one of the previous posters said, CaCl (Calcium Chloride) is a great way to keep the dust down on a gravel lane. It works by absorbing water and holding it for a prolonged period of time. It also causes the road to harden, so its best to regrade it before application.

Here is a site with more info:

Calcium cloride - about $20.00 per bag and does a great job.

if you can find someone like me who makes his own bio-diesel, you can use the glycerine by-product to control dust. I have sprayed 150 gallons on a large parcel and it work awesome.
