MORE ON VETIVER AND FORESTRY

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

There is an old pineapple plantation in Thailand that was abandoned and completely denuded.  The Royal Development Project Board used the area as an example of how Vetiver System could be used as the primary tool for forest regeneration.  The area was treated with vetiver hedgerows in 1994, or thereabouts.  I understand that today the 60 ha is now totally reforested, with little evidence of vetiver - that has done its job. See images (1996) when the vetiver has been in the ground for a couple of years.  The small pond remained full year round because of the water recharge due to Vetiver.
