KIKUYU is one of the most valuable pasture plants on dairy farms in the South-West of Western Australia.
It combines well with subterranean clover and ryegrass if heavily stocked, and pastures managed in this way can be cut for legume-grass hay in the spring. However, relatively little is known of its carrying capacity or potential for production under grazing.
