Sscabra is very drought toleran, 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.
