Abstract
Rhodes grass (Chloris gayana Kunth) in Kenya has a cross-pollinating habit and in atrial at Kitale it showed 98 per cent cross pollination and only 2 percent selfing (Bogdan, 1963). The methods of selection and breeding developed in Europe and America for temperate perennial grasses, which are practically all cross-pollinating, xenogamous Species, are therefore applicable to Rhodes grass.
