Design and Implementation of an Irrigation system for a watered land area of at least 1000 Ha in various Patchouli production sites in Nyanza-Lac and Rumonge.

Recycling System

Hot water from the distillation factory is stored in big basins to decrease its temperature and then reused in the same factory for an efficient utilization of water.

Patchouli Oil

Extracted from the leaves of the Patchouli plant, Patchouli essential oil has many uses and benefits for both the mind and body. Patchouli oil produced at ELAGA is for export at International markets.


A research on patchouli is being done at MUSATWE by ISABU in collaboration with Wageningen University Research. Patchouli crops under different conditions are monitored from nursery.

Oil distillation

The Patchouli essential oil distillation plant is fully functional with excellent efficiency.
