Application of the vetiver grass system in land stabilisation, erosion and sediment control in civil construction

, : Application of the vetiver grass system in land stabilisation, erosion and sediment control in civil construction. Vetiver Newsletter ( 18): 49-53

Since the late 1980s, vetiver grass (Vetiveria zizanioides) took a new and significant role in slope stabilisation and flood mitigation as the Vetiver Grass System (VGS). Flume tests conducted in Southern Queensland, Australia showed that its incorporation into strip cropping provides good protection from floodwater over 90 m spacing on 0.2-0.35% slopes.
