Weeping love grass is a densely tufted indigenous perennial grass with a very high leaf yield. It is a highly variable species with many regional varieties and genotypes. It is generally considered to be an excellent forage grass for hay production, but with moderate to low qualities for direct grazing and use as foggage. It makes excellent quality hay (provided it is well fertilised) due to the thin leaves which dry quickly. It is also used for direct grazing, particularly early in the growing season as it is one of the first grasses to “green up” in summer. The preferability to grazers however sharply declines as the season progresses (depending on soil fertility). Weeping love grass is also used as a ley crop in rotation with annual crops.
