Description

Buffalograss is now the main grass marketed (into shaded areas) across Australia. It is coarse-textured and needs to be mown higher than green couch varieties (around 35-40 mm) for best results. It has reasonable drought and wear tolerance, but certain varieties show poor tolerance of some of the commonly used herbicides for broadleaf weed control in turf.
