Abstract: Ecological study of Dactyloctenium aegypticum in semi arid grassland is described with a view to utilize it for the regional wasteland development. Dactyloctenium aegypticum is a dominant species. Maximum individual density was found nearly 40 % of the total density in the community. Biomass was also found nearly 44 % of the total biomass. The species was rich in Ca+ content, less in P content. D. aegypticum owes its significance in the region as it forms a species for bioreclamation of salt affected soils. The soil in the region requires special management practices and areas unfit for agriculture can be utilized for pasture development.
