Black-footed grass is a densely tufted perennial grass with soft velvety leaves of medium height. It is a highly palatable grass adapted to subtropical to arid savanna and grassland regions with sandy to sandy loam soils. Black-footed grass is used for direct grazing and foggage. Due to its high palatability, it is one of the first grasses to disappear during poor rangeland management and is commonly used in restoration and re-enforcement of poor rangelands. It has a high winter activity compared to other summer growing grasses.
