Humidicola grass (Brachiaria Humidicola)

Description/Overview

Humidicola grass (Brachiaria humidicola) is a strong creeping Tropical grass that will tolerate water logging whilst producing high volumes of feed on a variety of soils, including sandy soils to heavy clays. It is well suited for rainfall regions upwards of 1000-1500mm/year.


Humidicola is truly a strong, creeping, and vigorous Tropical grass capable of setting aggressive roots, forming a dense sward and able to thrive in waterlogged soils for a few months. Humidicola will respond well to nitrogen, superphosphate and phosphorus when applied at generous rates according to soil types.


Humidicola – while primarily grown for grazing in waterlogged pastures, it has been grown for hay production due to its large volumes of DM produced.
