Efficient system for soil conservation and erosion management

Vetiver is a low-cost, efficient plant, used in over 100 countries, for soil and water conservation, infrastructure stabilization, pollution control, waste water treatment, mitigation, and many other bio-engineering applications. This plant is the main component to all Vetiver System bio-engineering and soil conservation applications.  This cultivated variety of Chrysopogon zizanioides has its center of origin in southern India.  It can be used in the tropics and semi-tropics, and areas that have a Mediterranean type climate where there are hot summers, and winters are temperate.  The very basis of the Vetiver System is that when vetiver is planted as a hedgerow across a slope, it forms a dense barrier that slows down and spreads rainfall runoff. The plant has a very deep and strong root system, and an attribute of sterility and non-invasive behavior.
