The Vetiver System is easy to use, low cost, and, if applied correctly, works! This handbook describes its most important uses for the agricultural sector where its should be a key farm techlogy for farmers of any scale, but particularly small farmers and rural communities in tropical and sub-tropical countries, where it could change the lives of many thousands of people through the provision of a better quality of life and income benefits.
