GBLC - African Lovegrass - Options for Improved Management

12th September 2013

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.
