Vetiver Manual in Spanish

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Statistics about readers of this blog obtained from Google tools indicate that we now have readers in over 50 countries around the world. A good number of these readers include Spanish speakers from Spain and Latin American countries that are making great progress in the adoption of Vetiver bioengineering practices. Abundant documentation regarding Vetiver grass and the Vetiver System is available for English speaking readers at the web site of The Vetiver Network International, but good documentation in Spanish, however, is scattered, and somewhat difficult to locate.

Our good friend
Joachim Boehnert, associate director of The Vetiver Network for Latin America, made me aware of an excellent document by Dr. Julio Alegre Orihuela, researcher and teacher at the Universidad Nacional Agraria la Molina in Lima, Peru. His study, Manual sobre el uso y manejo del gras Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides) has 37 pages of excellent information and photos that should prove very valuable to our Spanish readers. This document can be downloaded here.

We also encourage our Latin American readers to join the discussion group Red Vetiver Latina, coordinated by Joachim Boehnert. This site provides the means for Spanish speakers to network and exchange information and stories on the many projects in Latin America.

We thank both of these capable professionals for their contributions on this subject.
