Teff is a rapid growing, fine-stemmed, soft annual tufted grass with many lax stems. It is mainly used to produce high-quality hay, particularly in cooler high laying regions. It is particularly popular as fodder for horses but is also readily consumed by livestock and game animals alike. Due to its rapid growth rate, good ground cover and annual life cycle, it is often used in soil stabilisation, as a nurse crop in forage mixtures and in preparation of new crop fields. In many countries, it is also produced as a gluten-free health cereal. Teff is regarded as a non-invasive exotic species in our region (Southern Africa).
