(P <0.0001) between varieties and area, for some of the studied indicators. The highest DM and biomass yields were obtained in Tanzania in El Empalme (2.17 and 6.97 t / ha, respectively, P <0.0001), and those of PB were for Tanzania in Guayas (12.52%, P <0.0001), while cell wall components did not differ among varieties, only ADL was significant for Guayas (3.82 %, P <0.004). The effect of climatic area on yield and quality of forages was demonstrated in the current research, where the best performance of productivity and morphological development was obtained in the area with the highest rainfall (El Empalme), while quality was better
for that with the lowest rainfall (Guayas). Although there were no differences for leaf growth, cell wall components, digestibility and energy contribution, its adaptability and potential in the different ecosystems are confirmed.
