Bermuda Terra Verde #77792

Bermuda Terra Verde #77792

Tierra Verde bermuda blend features two of Pennington's improved varieties of forage bermuda, Mohawk and Sahara II. This unique, versatile blend contains 50% hulled and 50% unhulled seed thus allowing a wide planting window from spring to early fall. It is well suited for hay, grazing and high traffic sites such as arenas, pasture lanes and other maintained areas. Can also be used a vegetative erosion control planting.

 

Planting Date: May to August

Planting Rate: 1/4 lbs per 1000 sq/ft for small area.

Broadcast Rate: 15 to 20 lbs per acre.

Drill Rate: 15 to 20 lbs per acre

Coverage Depth: 1/8" to 1/4" maximum

Days to maturity: Times may vary greatly, but cutting or grazing should be delayed until grass is 6" to 8" tall.

Method:
Plant when soil moisture is adequate. For spring planting, delay seeding until soil temperatures average 65 degrees or higher at a 4 inch depth. For summer plantings, do not plant when ambient temperatures are expected to be above the middle 90?s. If weeds become problematic, mow the field  periodically to reduce competition with the developing bermuda seedlings. To further reduce competition from weeds and grasses, delay the application of fertilizers containing nitrogen until the bermuda seedlings have fully emerged. 
For Clean-tilled Ground - Broadcast
  Prepare the ground well in advance. This allows the first flush of crabgrass and other weed competition to germinate and be killed by an application of a non-residual and non-selective herbicide like glyphosate before planting.
  Clean-till the area with a disc, then level and smooth the area. Use a culti-packer to prepare a firm seedbed before planting. Several passes may be necessary to achieve proper firmness.
  Broadcast the seed and culti-pack once more to get good seed to soil contact. Bermudagrass
seed will not germinate in a fluffy, loose seedbed
