2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By O. J. Hawes on February 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
I used this guide to design a slope stabilisation project in Uganda. It provided all I needed to know to write a project engineering specification and guidance for growing the plants. The book is clearly set out and invaluable if you want to determine if vetiver is suitable for your application or do a detailed design. I would recommend it to anybody who is serious about using vetiver.
