An assessment of the effectiveness of the use palm kernel shells as a dust control palliative on an unpaved road has been carried out. The palm kernel shells were able to reduce the quantity of dust generated from the road to about 75% a few days after the application. It was then suggested that with the absence of funds for road maintenance works organic materials like palm kernel shells could be used as palliatives.
