"This research set out to domesticate an Australian native grass to produce a perennial grain crop. Perennial (long-lived) grain crops offer a new solution to the long-standing problems of salinity and erosion associated with conventional cropping systems based on annual plants.... The research identified the native species weeping rice grass (Microlaena stipoides) as a promising candidate for a perennial grain crop on the basis of its seed size and wide distribution."--Foreword.
