Chile - Riverbank Stabilization Project

Friday, November 7, 2008

Bioingenieria Wallace, a well-known bioengineering firm of Santiago, Chile, reports on a riverbank stabilization project using Vetiver grass bioengineering in conjunction with traditional gavions.

The project, in Southern Chile, was realized with the assistance of
Paul Truong, the Vetiver Network Director for Asia and the Pacific. The Bío Bío River Basin project was funded by Ministry of Public Works of Chile and The Chilean Technological Innovation Fund.

The document, found here, stresses the importance of using well established plants as opposed to bare-root cutting in order to obtain good results in the shortest time. Our nursery,
Agriflora Tropicals, produces similar well-rooted plants by propagating plants in reusable plastic trays, therefore avoiding the plastic waste of polybags.
