What are the disadvantages of Red Napier?

Red Napier grass is an aggressive plant it grows by 12 feet to 15 feet and it absorbs the nutrients in the soil to grow well.

If you are planting Red Napier in the Coconut Farm or another farm as intercrop, Red Napier will grow well but the growth and yield of the main crop will get hindered. Due to this additional fertilization needs to be done for the main crops.
