This movie shows how management of Ano Farm (Western Ethiopia) used Vetiver System to reduce erosion and improve groundwater recharge. The results are higher crop yields and increased groundwater and regenerated water flow from springs. This technology has great potential for offsetting some of the problems associated with climate change. The farm manager explains that he soil was poor but when applying manure, compost, he saw it could not be effective without the hedges, to control runoff.
