  Vetiver Grass. It's Use for Soil and Water Conservation, Embankment Stabilization, and Land Reclamation

This technical paper is the result of seven years of research and development on the use of vetiver grass as a promising - and proven - agricultural technology to prevent soil erosion and conserve precious rainfall moisture. The information contained herein is intended for both present and potential users of vetiver, so that they might assess its usefulness and applicability. This technical paper includes the ten newsletters of the Vetiver Information Network; Vetiver Grass: The Hedge Against Erosion, the technically-oriented handbook providing step-by-step instructions as to the use of the technology; "Vetiver Grass: The Ideal Plant for Vegetative Soil and Moisture Conservation," a monograph by John Greenfield detailing the history and potential of vetiver grass; "The Role of Vetiver Grass in Sustaining Agricultural Productivity," a summary paper by Richard Grimshaw "debunking" some of the myths, and confirming others, commonly believed about vetiver; a detailed index ; and a selected reading list on this topic by the National Research Council. The book will be published on December 20 1995. Active members of the Vetiver Network will get a free copy. Others can purchase a copy from The Bookstore, World Bank, 1818 H Street NW, Washington DC 20433 USA.
