"Monument de la Renaissance Africaine"

Slope stabilization at Sococim site
I would like to draw your attention to Tony Cisse's work with vetiver in Senegal.  Tony farms (using vetiver) in the Cap Vert area (200 mm rainfall per year!).

He has made good use of the plant on his farm and has a growing business in infrastructure slope stabilization.  His latest work being the stabilization of the land supporting the huge statute "Monument de la Renaissance Africaine" see:

He has also been stabilizing infrastructure belonging to the industrial company - Sococim

Tony has been successful, where others have failed because he has always applied the technology correctly.  I would recommend that if you have not visited his blog that you do.

Tony's technical excellence level has recently been up graded to Class 1.  He truly knows what he is doing.  If he can achieve success in dry Senegal, you can be fairly assured that VS will be successful in areas of higher rainfall!

Tony runs training courses for local farmers  the response has been good.

Well done Tony!!
