Dr MaryLucy - Thanks a lot for your response. I understand Brachiaria brizantha is the widely used and improved Brachiaria in Brazil, Columbia and Australia, native to Africa. I recently saw a video show casing how B. brizantha is helping livestock farmers in Kenya, it also supports your response that it is the most used spps for 'climate smart Push-Pull technology'. Thanks Ma'am.
