A very hardy, trample-tolerant fibre that provides high yields over a long period - up to 8-10 years. It has deep roots and very good drought tolerance. It has a slow initial growth rate and can survive in exposed soils with higher salinity.
Popular component of mowing and grazing mixtures in dry, extensive conditions. It is a high yielding, long-lived species that performs well in soils with poor water and nutrient management.
