Vetiver System under dry and wet climates - Share your experiences

Monday, April 19, 2010

 There are two Picassa gallery sites that I follow quite closely.  The first is Tony Cisse's site - Vetiver Senegal Public Gallery  Tony farms and develops vetiver in Senegal's driest area - Cap Verte (200 mm rainfall).  His blog is both interesting and informative.  He uses VS to support on-farm production and for off farm applications.  He has loads of experience and is happy to share his ideas.
The other gallery is Yoann Coppin's who lives and works in high rainfall Madagascar. Yoann has been awarded contracts for railroad cut and fill stabilization, and pollution control and water clean up.  He is also a great community man and has many small farmers growing vetiver as a marketable enterprise.  He demonstrates that if the demand can be created the small guys are responsive and can produce high quality plant material  Yoann preaches QUALITY - QUALITY - QUALITY!!  You can see this in his planting of the railway slopes in northern Madagascar.
