Planting and care

  • scabra is very drought tolerant; plants that have received no rain since the previous April will shoot with the rising temperatures
  • While best adapted to infertile, acid, sandy-surfaced soil, especially solodics, shrubby stylo is more versatile in its soil requirements than most stylos and at times will grow in heavier textured, less acid soils
  • Spreads readily and widely on some soil types
  • especially sandy surfaced solodics, but spread on soils with hard-setting surfaces
  • Suited to aerial seeding or ground spreading, depending on the sophistication of the farming system

Stylosanthes scabra Grass care

  • The seed planted on the surface of a recently burnt area will soften rapidly under the influence of a hot sun

  • The rate of softening is slower, and it is normal to scarify half the sample by depodding prior to planting
