Vetiver System and Fishponds

Thursday, April 19, 2007

We have good feedback from Vietnam that Vetiver Grass will clean up fish ponds. More on this later in the year.


In the mean time here is a snippet from David Booth in Indonesia:


"We have also had very good results from placing vetiver in algae-full fish ponds. Whilst we do not have the lab equipment to test for nutrients, we do have the turbidity testing equipment and proved that sediment in the ponds was completely eliminated in 6-8 weeks". Can you suggest any easily available/affordable test kits for checking the various nutrients in such water?"
