Vetiver System – some new and useful power point

I have added some new power points on Esnips

They comprise selected power points from previous vetiver conferences. Some have Spanish captions. There are two of immediate importance: Vetiver System for Natural Disasters Reduction in Vietnam – An Overview – that should interest our friends in the Caribbean and other island nations; and one on managing fertility and weed problems on steep slopes: Improving the efficiency of the Vetiver System for Highway stabilization for sustainability and improved maintenance. In high rainfall areas such as south east Asia and Hawaii establishing vetiver on infertile C horizon soils can be difficult – weeds can also be a serious problem. This power point shows how interplanting Arachis pintoi, a creeping leguminous forage peanut, between vetiver hedgerows suppressed weeds and enhanced soil fertility.
