Vetiver Research Project

NatBeHo recently got the opportunity to join a project on “Vetiver grass systems for purification of polluted water at Bere Lake”. This project is led by Dr. Chandani Jayathilake from Ministry of Megapolis and Western Development. NatBeHo got the opportunity to become their research partner on 22nd September 2017. By 12th October Dr. Chandani Provided us with some vetiver plants and these plants were planted on porous plastic pots with coconut coir. Since we need to promote rooting in these plants, they were floated on water obtained from a natural water stream. It will take few months for root development after which analysis will be carried out.
