AbstractIn 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.
