An excellent document is now available that provides basic guidelines for installing vetiver grass in soil conservation applications. This guide was published in 2012 by the Oahu Resource Conservation and Development Council in cooperation with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Pacific Islands Area.
The 16-page PDF document (in English) can be downloaded free from this store. Here you will also find many other valuable free documents and several vetiver plant packages that can be ordered for shipment to USA destinations.
