TEFF

Eragrostis tef

Teff is an annual grass species adapted to a wide range of conditions. This tufted grass produces ample fine leaves and stems which makes it an ideal crop for hay production.

 

The fast emergence of seedlings provides protection to the soil and is often used for erosion control.

 

This grass is best adapted to areas where the annual rainfall is approximately 600 mm per annum, but can be cultivated in areas with an annual rainfall as low as 400 mm per annum.
