Buffel grass occurs in various forms in tropical and sub-tropical parts of Africa and Southern Asia and extends from Arabia to India. It has been found in Madagascar, Socotra and, in more recent years, in the northern parts of Australia. The exact date of introduction into north-western Australia is not known for certain, but it was probably brought in accidentally in camel fodder from India about 1910. The spread of the plant along the coastal areas since that time has been both spectacular and rapid.
