Managing rangelands: promoting sustainable grass/forage species - Buffel Grass uri icon

abstract

  • Buffel Grass: A resilient, drought-tolerant forage species to alleviate feed shortages and feeding costs. Arid and semi-arid rangelands face increasing climate variability and grazing pressure as the world?s demand for food increases. ICARDA is promoting drought-tolerant species as a crucial means of assisting rangeland rehabilitation efforts, helping to conserve rapidly-depleting water resources, and maintain grazing at sustainable levels. The result: a win-win situation for rural communities and the environment
