Vetiver Systems Applications - Technical Reference Manual

Sunday, January 27, 2008

People are always asking me for an updated manual on Vetiver Systems Applications.  Well here it is, some 100 pages of "how to" based on 20 years worldwide experience that culminated in Vietnam.  The manual was originally written as a technical manual for Vietnamese engineers and conservationist. We liked it so much that we upgraded it to an English version.  The photos are in black and white.  The manual sets out how Vetiver Systems can be used for environmental protection and disaster mitigation. It is very practical with a lot of detail on putting theory into practice.  Everybody working in the area of natural resources management, especially in the tropics and semi tropics should have a copy of this manual.  I can guarantee that you won't regret it! The manual can be purchased at for US$8 plus shipping. Buy it for yourself or a friend.
