Abstract
Until recently Rhodes grass has been virtually the only plant. used for improved pastures and leys in Northern Tanzania. Most of the earlier grassland work at Tengeru was {;oncentrated on the introduction and selection of Rhodes grass varieties which could produce more and better-quality fodder. The object of the work described here was to compare ten of the most promising selections of different Rhodes grass strains and two Buffel grass strains with regard to productivity, quality and drought resistance, under a system involving both cutting and grazing.
