A Good Grass for Dry or Semi-arid Districts. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 2 June 1914
A Good Grass for Dry or Semi-arid Districts. (To the Editor.) Sir,—Haviug been au experi mentalist for many years past with various grasses aud fodder plants, and having proved -the native Rhodes Grass (Chloris barbata vara decora) to be a rapid grower and heavy yielder of nutritious fodder, I wish to briug its great merit before our pastoralists. It attains the height of 3 aud 4 feet, is relished by stock, aud will retain its verdue v?hen other grasses arc dried up, and if cut before seeding, makes palatable hay. According to analysis it is one of the richest grasses we possess either imported or indigenous. It is only quite re cently that it has come into pro minence, principally through the favorable reports from Queensland, where it is said to have succeeded wonderfully in clay-pau, wind swept and sun-scorched country where other grasses were difficult to establish, It is, however, a na tive of this State, also, having been identified in 190-1 and it will pro bably succeed even ...
