Bermuda Seed


Common Bermudagrass seed is used for pasture, hay production, erosion control, lawns,
roadsides and many other uses. It is adapted for a wide range of soil types from sandy to clay
soils. This bermudagrass is best adapted to the lower 1/3 of the US on well drained sites. It is
very drought tolerant but still can stand flooding for short periods. Makes a coarse general
purpose lawn and is still planted for lawn use throughout warm season areas. Also the least
expensive grass variety you can plant from seed. Planting from seed is the most cost effective
way to plant bermudagrass. Hulled seeds are seeds that have part of the protected seed coat
mechanically removed so as to speed up germination percentages. This makes it more likely
for the seed to all germinate at or near the same time. More hulled seed is planted than any
other kind because people generally want fast germination which is best achieved with hulled
seed. Coated seed has been coated with a coating material (clay based) and a fungicide to
increase successful germination by providing control of seed and soil borne pathogens.
