Assam experiences heavy rainfalls frequently leading to floods which affect large area and destroy many crops standing in fields. The situation is more problematic around the river Brahmaputra where a large area remains submerged for prolonged periods. Khus (Vetiver) can withstand water-logging conditions and hence was introduced in these areas. Presently, it covers around 9 hectares of land yielding good quality Vetiver oil and providing an alternate agriculture option for farmers who are frequently losing their crops due to floods. This crop is now providing a net benefit of more than Rs. 1 Lakh per hectare annually, especially to the farmers who used to lose their crops. The oil extracted from Citronella has extensive use in industries involved in the production of mosquito repellants. Earlier, Citronella used to cover a huge area but lost its popularity due to the introduction of tea. Presently, Citronella covers an area of only 3 hectares in Assam, However, declining profits in tea and increasing demands of citronella oil, has once again enhanced the interest of farmers towards cultivation of Citronella. Another crop, which flourishes well under humid conditions of North-East is Lemongrass, which covers an area of around 10 hectares. To make the farmers aware about these crops, 5 awareness programs were organized and a total of 128 farmers participated in them.
