Vetiver System Applications – A Technical Reference Manual

TVNI announces the web publishing of a new manual in English, authored by Paul Truong, Tran Tan Van and Elise Pinners. This 134 page manual describes all the important applications of the Vetiver System, drawing on research data and actual applications primarily from tropical SE Asia.


Included is a detailed description of vetiver grass, its propagation and management. It contains many excellent color photographs.


The manual is currently published in Vietnamese and Mandarin. We are looking for funding for a publication in English and other world languages.


In the mean time the final version in English is available for downloading at:


TVNI and the authors have no objection to the manual being copied, translated and published by third parties. Note that the manual is produced in a format of independent chapters that if necessary can be separately published.


I would be grateful if you would copy this announcement to others who might be interested.


Thank you
