Fast growing plants are a good option to reduce erosion of river banks. Hemp has been reportedly used before, due to it being fast growing.

There are various techniques available to prevent or control river bank erosion and flooding. Most common technique is building river dyke/levee along the river bank. You can construct either civil engineered concrete dyke or stone filled gabion box or bio- dyke. But the choice of construction materials depends upon river size, water force, past trend of bank erosion and flooding.
