Tropical Grasslands-Forrajes Tropicales (ISSN official abbreviation: Trop. grassl.-Forrajes trop.) is an international, bilingual, peer-reviewed, open-access, online journal created in 2012 as the result of a merger of the former journal Tropical Grasslands, published from 1967 to 2010 by the Tropical Grassland Society of Australia Inc., and the former journal Pasturas Tropicales, published from 1979 to 2007 by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT, its Spanish acronym). The Journal is published every four months by CIAT in Cali, Colombia, with the issues corresponding to the periods February‒May, June‒September and October‒January, respectively.

The creation of the Journal was made possible through an anonymous donation in memory of the late José M. Toledo, leader of the then CIAT Tropical Pastures Program in the 1980s. The Journal is currently published in association with the Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences (CATAS). This allows publication without any article submission and processing charges (APC).
