Achnatherum splendens -- Jiji Grass - some new images

Here follows a series of images of jiji grass provided by Liyu Xu - CVN coordinator.

The Wallace Genetic Foundation has provided TVN/CVN US$15,000 to undertake research into jiji grass. The main purpose of the research is to better identify

its physical and agronomic properties and to start establishing its current uses and practices for land stabilization.

The following photos are shown as they arrived and were taken in north China where the winters are very cold, where the rainfall is low and the soils have high pH.
