Paspalum notatum, (of the Poaceae family) also known as bahiagrass, common bahia, and Pensacola bahia, is a type of grass that grows in tropical and subtropical climates.
It is well-known for its large V-shaped inflorescence, which is made up of two spike-like racemes that each have many small spikelets.
Bahiagrass is a warm-season perennial grass that is commonly used for pasture, hay, and silage. It has good drought tolerance and survives on low grazing pressure.
Bahiagrass produces an abundant supply of forage that is high in fiber and low in nitrogen concentration. For this reason, it is well suited for dairy cows and horses.
