#BRU

Petro Fowler sowing a mix of eragrostic curvula and eragrostis teff on ground left bare after clearing and burning.  Two academic papers supplied by WWF have somewhat contradictory reports on germination success of e curvula. Both seem to say e teff will germinate. Previous trials on the bank of the Umgeni itself showed disappointing germination.  7 Kg of mixed seed was sowed on Saturday 18th November on a section of the Furth stream valley, and was raked in deeper than the previous trail.  We will wait and see how it goes.
