Controlling the fountain grass (lat. Pennisetum setaceum) is crucial for the vegetation of the islands since this plant is one of the biggest “predators” of the Canarian biodiversity.
This introduced African plant can reach up to one meter of height and can produce more than 10.000 seeds in its numerous spikes.
It is important to control because of its aggressive expansion, which displaces the autochthonous Canarian vegetation.
