Bermuda - Common Pasture Grass Seed
This common bermuda grass seed is unhulled and coated for easier spreading and establishment. Forage bermuda grass is used in the South in zones 8 - 10. It makes great hay for horses, cattle, llamas, alpacas, etc. where the climate is hot and dry. Hulled bermdua grass seeds have the seed husk removed and germinate faster while unhulled still have a natural seed husk that generally delays germination. This delay is nature's way of waiting for more ideal conditions and ensuring a species survival.
Under good growing conditions hulled bermuda seed will create a faster established pasture. Bermuda common pasture grass has an average analysis of 10% protein and 50% TDN. For pastures plant 10 to 15 lbs/acre between March to July in a well prepared seed bed.
Hay can be harvested at 4 to 6 week intervals. Responds well to high levels of Nitrogen fertilizer. Add lime at pH below 5.5. Apply nitrogen after each cutting. The seed is very small, and needs daily temperatures above 60 degrees for best germination.
10 - 15 lbs/acre.
