Description 
Hardier than sugar cane and more adapted to poor soils and dry conditions; also leafier, with thin hard canes.
Nutritional aspects
Ruminants 
May be cultivated for fodder in the same way as napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum Schumach.), but feed value and yields are lower. Cut for fodder at intervals of three to four months.
