AbstractIn South Africa lovegrass yields liveweight cattle gains around 375 lb./acre, and it is easily managed by very heavy and continuous grazing during the growing period. Fertilizer boosts production, but is not essential on grazed pasture. For reclamation of rangeland the chloromelas type appears more aggressive than the coarser curvula and robusta types. Feeding value of lovegrass hay is at least equal to that of teff hay.
