Much of the buffelgrass research conducted in the United States to date has concentrated on improving its establishment under cultivation for cattle forage or for erosion control. As buffelgrass invasion accelerated in the 1980's, the research focus began to shift gradually towards evaluating impacts in both urban and natural areas.

Research conducted on buffelgrass in other countries around the world offer some perspectives and useful information for developing and implementing more localized management goals.
