Background and objective: Wind erosion is one of the prominent desertification processes in many parts of the world such as low rainfall areas; and Iran is faced with this difficulty because of its geographical location. This study tries to consider some wind sediment controlling method especially the effect of oil mulch on sand stabilization.
Method: This study is a functional research by using descriptive-analytic method; according to necessities of the research, library studies, watching some satellite images, referring to relevant governmental organization, making interviews as well as fieldworks were done. Finally, logical solutions for proper managements against wind erosion deliver according to the mentioned information.   
Findings: In recent years droughts in south of Kerman province destroyed the poor vegetation in desert as well as increased wind speed in the region along with desertification process and creating dunes. These mentioned elements also caused severe wind erosion in critical centers, so destroyed bushes and trees in Ghale-Ganj plain. Increasing growth of dunes is a threat to villages and caused the migration of the rural population. Visiting the region and studying the existing researches indicate that using oil mulch can be applied as a practical way to control the wind erosion and dunes in Ghale-Ganj area. 
Conclusion: The application of oil mulch to control wind erosion and dust prevention is the considerable way in country. The oil mulch has many benefits and is an effective way to prevent dunes; but the destruction of the environment by oil mulch makes it difficult to use.
