Vetiveria

Vetiveria- One of the objectives of the project was to create new resources for foddering livestock, trying to restore pasture and introducing a forage plant.

An area has been identified where to experiment, for the supply of fodder (not direct pasture) for bo

th sheep and cattle, the Vetiveria Zizanoides, a plant with very developed roots, self-sterile, already widely spread also in Africa, but above all in Asia.

The seedlings were planted with the help of the Nanyori Group, which is responsible for the development of this agronomic project.

The Vetiveria, after the first phase, no longer needs irrigation and, when it has reached an adequate height, its leaves can be cut and harvested to be used as forage (it cannot be grazed).

The area dedicated to the Vetiveria was divided into 3 small sub-areas.
