GBLC - African Lovegrass - Options for Improved Management
African lovegrass (Eragrostis curvula) has been in Australia for more than 100 years. Many different types were introduced from Africa, where it was considered to be a useful pasture species with good soil conservation characteristics. Its impact as a major weed has increased dramatically in the past 3-4 decades. It is a highly aggressive and resilient invasive species which can readily form monocultures in grassland/ woodland systems.
This seven page publication prepared by Granite Borders Landcare Inc. looks at the various characteristics of the plant and options for Management, Suppression and Control.
