Kangaroo Grass

Themeda triandra
A perennial grass reaching up to 5 feet, that is a widespread native of Africa, Asia and Australia. The foliage is green.
The flowers during summer produce large red-brown spikelets on branched stems.
This barely known grain may have great potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable agriculture. It is already being used as a grain in Africa.
