Irrigation canals in Bendung Village, Kasemen District, Serang, only partially have masonry installed, most of them are still open canals. As time went by, the condition became deplorable, due to rain which eroded the cliffs due to surface erosion. This program aims to provide education about the vetiver system as a method of controlling surface erosion in irrigation canals. The method used in this activity was socialization about prevention of surface erosion in irrigation canals with vetiver roots, training and mentoring in making a pilot arrangement of vetiver in irrigation canals. As a result of the community service activities that have been carried out, it can be concluded that the socialization activities and shallow landslide/erosion control training with the "vetiver system" have provided new knowledge and skills for the people of Bendung Village.
