Abstract: One of the most important objectives of soil protection is to reduce water, wind and soil erosion. Protecting soil and water is very important in agricultural areas with different slope grades. Soil sustainability (in terms of quality and quantity) provides economic contributions to agriculture. It has succeeded in planting of Vetiver grass (Vetiver grass zizanioides L.) used for erosion prevention in dune stabilization and especially in agriculture fields by holding the soil layer disappearing with superfluous flow especially in the southern hemisphere, slope and slopes in some of the world's geographical regions. The Vetiver System (VS), an effective and low-cost system, is used in more than one hundred countries for environmentally friendly soil and water applications. In addition, oil obtained from its roots and perfume industry and handicrafts are a high perennial herbaceous plant with a high economic output. The Eastern Black Sea Region is a region where agricultural land is low and agricultural density is high because of its rugged topography. The Eastern Black Sea Region lands with high slope grades are faced with erosion (water and soil erosion), landslides and floods. In order to ensure the basic elements of life, the sustainability of water and soil, protection of rural and agricultural areas it is desired to reach the development of the additional Vetiver system in addition to environmental protection measures. Vetiver grass is an ecologically sustainable living system. In this study, the reasons for the necessity of using Vetiver grass in agricultural areas are revealed. In addition, the importance of implementation and trial work in the areas where water and soil erosion problems are experienced in Turkey is mentioned. The role of these developments in enhancing economic performance in agricultural areas is being discussed.
