Veldt Grass

veldt grass

We are starting to notice a particularly invasive grass around the Top of the South. Its name is Veldt Grass or Erhartia erecta. This grass is very easily spread through seed on boots or clothing and is making its presence felt even in remote areas. Given its ability to thrive in shade and smother vegetation it makes it a serious threat to bio diversity.
The good news is that it is easily controllable with herbicides such as Glyphosate. It just takes diligence and a methodical approach to eradication. Doing nothing is not an option as it will just totally take over areas. It is never cheaper or easier to control than right now.
