Enteropogon acicularis is found widely through the dry, inland regions of Australia. It occurs regularly in both the arid tropical and arid temperature zones of all mainland states. It occurs now only as remnants, but may have once been a dominant grass throughout these areas.
– Curly Windmill grass is high quality forage under low input systems. It is highly palatable and can be easily grazed out of set stocked pastures.
– This grass can be used under horticultural applications of vines or tree fruits in the more arid areas as it is capable of surviving under very low rainfall conditions.
– Curly Windmill grass has reasonably good salt tolerance and can be used in areas subject to dryland salinity.
– Curly Windmill grass produces attractive upright seedheads over the summer period and can be used for landscape applications such as golf course roughs where low maintenance is desired.
Curly Windmill grass is suited to soils that are mildly acid to alkaline and usually of high clay content. It has often been found on saline soils.
Seedlings are moderately vigorous and prefer to be sown into weed-free conditions. Seed should be sown either on the surface or just below surface level. The seed is quite small and should not be buried too deep. Germination under warm and wet conditions can be from seven to ten days, but will be longer if conditions are cool or moisture ceases. Sowing rate: 1 to 2kg/ha for revegetation and pasture.
