Vetiver and mass production: Update

Today I received the periodic update about the in-vitro propagation protocol of vetiver: 
here's the news: there were no major problems with bacterial or virus contaminations 
and only in one case 
a re-sterilization was necessary, the buds extracted started to grow and 
perhaps a month  the  proliferation phase will begin, followed by the greenhouse hardening of the first plants. 
Soon a first batch of plantlets Will be produced  in order to perform a field pilot test, 
maybe at the end of spring. 
Perhaps then, at the end of summer we will have obtained some genuine data on this promising chapter.
Many thanks to Romano and all the people involved.
