TVNI is stepping up its efforts to see an expansion of the Vetiver System in Brazil - where there is a huge potential for its use over a wide range of applications. We need Brazilians to volunteer and support the effort. We know from the analysis of our website that Brazilians are visiting the site in growing numbers. Vetiver has been in Brazil for many years and is grown for its aromatic oil, and I understand was reportedly used by Brazilian highways authorities for road stabilization in the Recife area.
Some of the Vetiver oil producers have very large areas of Vetiver that could easily provide added income if the crown of the plant was sold as Vetiver plant material for new growers. In fact this plant material may be of greater value than the oil!
