Description Californiagrass (paragrass) irrigated with effluent from secondarily treated domestic sewage showed excellent response as a means for disposal of large amounts of water, effective removal of nitrogen, and high production of excellent fodder. This grass, already well established in Hawaii, is used for pasture and fodder, endures flooding, and because of its allelopathic habit forms dense, easily maintained monostands. The water, nitrogen, and biomass budgets of the grass over a l7-mo period,...
