Kikuyu is a stoloniferous (above ground) and rhizomatous (below ground) perennial summer grass. It can be used as a permanent pasture. Surplus production can be ensiled. Kikuyu is also a popular turf species. Even though Kikuyu is a tropical/subtropical pasture that produces well in summer months, it is classified with the temperate species such as Tall Fescue, Cocksfoot and the Ryegrasses as an intensive, high-input pasture.

For high production, rainfall varying from 700 to 3000 mm is required. Under most South African conditions, it is cultivated under irrigation.
