        I have some areas of it. I am hoping that the cell management/rotational grazing will have a positive effect pn it.

        I also do cell/rotational grazing but doesnt seem to be helping. Some locals say their cows wont eat it but mine do,possibly because i rotate them.I have been concerned because it is taking over the kykuyu and other grasses. I was wondering if any other permaculturists had found a solution. It will be interesting to see how you go.
