Phalaris is a persistent and productive temperate perennial pasture grass. It is known from its ability to control weed growth and tolerance to extended periods of heavy grazing.
This grass performs good even in waterlogged or poorly drained soils and is very pest and disease resistant.
Phalaris may become dominant in the pasture and exclude all legumes, causing a decline in pasture quality and production. Maintaining grass-legume balance requires good grazing management.
