This grass is also known as Babui Grass in different part of the state.Especially the artistic designing of Sabai grass products are admired in foreign countries. So the industry has great export prospective. Sabai grass is usually cultivated in less fertile highlands. Water requirement for growing of this plant is less as compared to other crops.
