SA cocksfoot is an extremely palatable tufted grass with short thick rhizomes. It occurs naturally in grassland and karoo regions with moderate rainfall, where it is seen as the most valuable grazing grass. Due to its palatability, however, it is easily overgrazed and subsequently has decrease in numbers in large parts of its distribution range. It is mainly used for rangeland restoration.
