Looking for a deep-rooted, drought-tolerant grass that can survive at altitudes of up to 6,500 ft? Look no further than Cenchrus ciliaris, also known as African foxtail grass or Buffel grass. This species, native to most of Africa and southern Asia, is considered a great forage grass in its home range. Despite its benefits, the grass has become an invasive species in many places where it has been introduced, including Australia, South America, Central America, and the southwestern United States. Buffel grass is known for its ability to grow quickly and compete successfully against other vegetation, including native species. While it may be a great option for erosion control and as a source of livestock forage, management is essential to prevent its negative impacts.
