This single-stemmed palm grows well from seeds. Delicate roots can make transplanting seedlings difficult. Haussa grows quickly in both upland and seasonally flooded fields. The light, very small canopy makes it compatible for interplanting with almost any crop.

Grows in wild in Central America to Bolivia, up to 6000 ft elevation. In Ecuador it occurs on both sides of the Andes, on terra firme, or east of the Andes also on poorly drained soil.

Euterpe precatoria is harvested for edible palm heart (the apex), and the trunk is used for many construction purposes. A liquid from the roots is used to treat malaria. The fruit is used for the production of Açaí wine.
