Biochemical Parameters Allow The Identification Of Tolerant Genotypes Of Buffel Grass (Cenchrus ciliaris L.) To Drought And Heat Stress

Arid and semi-arid ecosystems occupy vast regions in many countries in the world. In these regions, edaphic and climatic conditions impose important restrictions on agriculture. Particularly in Argentina, cattle breeding activity is carried out in the northwest of the country in an area that covers 10 million hectares where arid and semi-arid environments predominate. The native grasslands in the region generate a scarce supply of fodder. In addition, they are often irrationally exploited, supporting high grazing pressure that causes environmental...
