The 6th International Vetiver Conference – May 5-8 2015

Friday, January 30, 2015


This conference, “Vetiver System: Empowering Sustainable Development”, is only 3 months away and will be held in Danang, Vietnam.. We encourage you and your colleagues to attend this conference to see and hear how the Vetiver System can significantly and positively impact on crucial environmental related development issues that are facing those dependent on land and water. These issues range from reducing soil and water loss, improving groundwater, mitigating disasters caused by extreme weather conditions, stabilizing soil based infrastructure, decontaminating polluted soil and water, and other related topics.

 Many users of the technology will be attending, and participants will learn how the Vetiver System technology can be applied successfully under different climatic and topographical conditions. We would encourage those of you who have social media sites to post this message, and in particular copy it to key professionals in your community (government and non-government) at local and state level. For details of the conference and registration see:

Note there is a 20% discount for registration before January 31 2015.

An excellent document is now available that provides basic guidelines for installing vetiver grass in soil conservation applications. This guide was published in 2012 by the Oahu Resource Conservation and Development Council in cooperation with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) Pacific Islands Area.

The 16-page PDF document (in English) can be downloaded free from the Agriflora Tropicals online store. There you will also find many other valuable free documents and several vetiver plant packages that can be ordered for shipment to USA destinations.
