|Themeda triandra in the Adelaide Hills|
Themeda triandra is a perennial grass widespread in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Pacific. In Australia it is commonly known as kangaroo grass, in East and South Africa it is known as "red oat grass" or red grass, in Afrikaans, rooigras.
A traditional food plant in Africa, this little-known grain may have potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development and support sustainable land use.
