• Brachiaria dura, a Promising New Forage Grass

      Verboom, W. C. (Society for Range Management, 1966-03-01)
      In Barotseland, Zambia, in Central Eastern Africa a grazing and ecological survey has revealed Brachiaria dura to have unusually favorable characteristics as a forage grass on sandy soils of low fertility. Chief among these characteristics are relatively high protein content, a long period of succulence, and a special root adaption to sandy soil.
