Lemon grass is a lucrative crop that can be farmed commercially for use in essential oils and herbal teas. The co-operative’s lemon grass harvest for 2010 was approximately two tons. In 2011, the co-operative expanded to 20 farmers who are working with approximately 1 200 – 1 300 lemon grass plants each. One farmer has already reached the 2 000 plant goal.
