Abstract Pennisetum pedicellatum Trin. was introduced to northern Australia for pasture trials and is now a major environmental and agricultural weed in northern Australia. Regular monitoring on populations on heavily disturbed sites showed that plant density and seed numbers per plant were very high, resulting in high annual seed input. The population had a short and synchronised flowering and seeding period. Control by cominations of fire, slashing and herbicide should occur prior to seeding or the large seed bank will result in re-establishment of the stand.
