NotesThe Xaraes is resistant to drought and has rapid regrowth. Low population levels presents the spittlebug-of-pastures and is ideal for intensification of pastureland. Can be grown in virtually all over the country, areas with good rainfall, without hars winters. The use of pasture during the rainy season should be pretty intensified, with high pressure of pasture. By presenting late flowering, its adaptation to the dry period is greater
SupportThe ability to support varies between 2.5 and 6.0 AU/ha in the rainy season and between 1.4 and 2.2 AU/ha in dry, medium fertility soils and well managed. Under these conditions the animal productivity varies between 600 to 810 kg liveweight/hectare/year.
