It is well adopted to tropical-subtropical regions, silvopastoral systems, integrated crop-livestock systems, well drained fertile soils but also drought tolerant due to its deep, dense and fibrous root system. Here in this review reader may additionally find information related to apomictic (clonal), sexual and tissue culture production methods in between selected morphological, anatomical and chemical characteristics of the species.
