abstract

  • Stipa lagascae: A heavy, adaptable grass that provides high quality hay. Arid and semi-arid rangelands face increasing climate variability and grazing pressure as the world?s demand for food increases. ICARDA is introducing 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
