The present invention relates to the development of a novel, morphologically and genetically distinct khusinol rich essential oil producing clone of vetiver [Vetiveria zizaniodes (L.) Nash. syn. Chrysopogon zizanioides (L.) Roberty; family Poacaeae} named ‘CIMAP- Khusinolika’. The plant of this clone is characterized by spreading type clump canopy in the initial stage, white feathery stigma and capable of producing >1% (v/w) essential oil containing 45-50% Khusinol (v/v) obtained after hydro-distillation from fresh roots harvested from 06 month old plantations. This clone has unique ISSR profiles that serve as DNA-fingerprints. The clone was obtained through recurrent selection in polycrossed population generated from the bulk of wild collection, and can be propagated through vegetative  slips (3 to 6 month old stem with few roots) for commercial plantation as a short duration crop.
