Abstract

Two useful perennials

Buffel grass (Cenchrus ciliaris L.) and Birdwood grass (Cenchrus setigerns. Vahl.) are two introduced perennial grasses which have become established in the coastal pastoral areas in the North-West of Western Australia. Both provide excellent grazing, being more nutritious than the majority of the native grasses, and efforts are being made to establish them over wider areas.
