Chapter 9 (Page no: 88)

Gramineae - temperate, prairie and tropical grasses.

This chapter deals with three groups of grasses, namely: temperate grasses (Lolium, Festuca, Dactylis, Phleum and Bromus); prairie grasses (Agropyron, Andropogon, Phalaris and Elymus), which are mainly produced for areas with a continental climate of predominantly cold winters followed by hot summers; and grass species (Chloris, Setaria, Sorghum and Brachiaria) that are either sown or naturally occurring in the humid or drier tropical and subtropical areas. It covers brief taxonomic account, origins, site selection, crop establishment, harvesting, seed processing and pests and pathogens of the selected grass species.
