Vetiver, a non-invasive perennial grass you see in the panorama making the green lines, with super deep and super strong roots, is THE solution for the so big necessity to mitigate the loss of lives and property due to severe landslide problems in tropical regions. Last year, in Rio de Janeiro state only, more than 900 lives were lost due to this problem.
