SUNGRAZER PLUS BERMUDAGRASS
All Seed Bermudagrasses
When to plant:
In the spring when ground temperature reaches a constant 65 to 70 degrees (20 degrees C) or better. This seed can be sown throughout the summer if enough moisture is present for germination.
Under ideal conditions, Bermuda will usually germinate within several weeks. However, there are many factors that will delay germination, such as soil characteristics, temperature and moisture.
Methods of Planting:
1)(Best way) Plow the field. If possible, use a cultapacker or roller to make certain the ground is as smooth as possible. Spray Agri-Gro seed booster and soil enhancer 1qt. per acre. Broadcast seeds, 15 lbs per acre, then roll again.
2)(Second best) On established pastures, Spray 1 qt. per acre Agri-Gro seed booster and soil enhancer then lightly disc, broadcast seeds on top (10 to 15 lbs per acre) and walk away.
3)(Third way) Harrow established pasture very aggressively to expose soil, Spray Agri-Gro seed booster and soil enhancer 1 qt. per acre broadcast seeds (15 lbs per acre) and walk away. Your stand from this method will not be as aggressive as a prepared plowed field.
Where to plant:
In full sun on well drained soil. Proper drainage is essential for successful establishment and development
DIRT CLODS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR PLANTING !Seed will fall under dirt clods and be buried too deep.
Between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch -NO DEEPER
Growing season: From early spring until first hard frost.
When to Begin grazing: When grass is 6 to 8 inches tall.
When to cut for hay: Consider that approximately every 28 days after the last cutting, the protein level is at its peak.
Lowest cutting or grazing height: 3 to 4 inches, will take more excessive grazing with no problems.
Soil: Will tolerate a wide range of soils from sand to heavy clay.
A soil sample is recommended to determine the best most accurate fertilization program. With no soil testing, we recommend 300 to 350 pounds of 18-9-18-6S pre-plant and follow, 45 days later, with 200 pounds of granulated nitrogen source for optimal growth.
Excellent drought tolerance but grows best in moist soils.
Standard growth: Runners can grow 6 to 18 feet long. Roots can develop to a depth of 20 feet or more. (Depending on type soil.)
We recommend around September 15th, broadcast 100 lbs of nitrate and 100 lbs of potassium. Or 200 lbs. peracre of 9-23-30.
This will prepare the Bermuda grass for winter dormancy.
Put yourself on a 5 to 7 year program of adding 10 to 15 lbs per acre of Hairy Vetch seed. This will help to enhance your soil development for more Bermudagrass production in the spring and summer months.
NOTE: Dormancy is not a complete stopping of activity. Even when dormant, the plant still needs nutrients and water to survive.

GENERAL PLANTING PRECAUTIONS
The simplest method of planting bermudagrass seed is to broadcast the seed into a pasture and leave. However, the simplest way is not necessarily the best.
Take the time to thoroughly prepare the site well ahead of planting and it will help increase the likelihood of getting a healthier, more successful stand.
Preparation of the soil to allow for proper movement of moisture and nutrients through the soil and prevent weed competition is critical to the early success of your Bermuda.
Site preparation must begin weeks, even months ahead of the anticipated planting date. Begin by removing existing vegetation, either through mechanical or chemical means. Then plow, till or somehow break up the soil then drag the soil to level.
Roll soil with roller or cultipacker.
Irrigate or allow rainfall to sprout weed seed in the soil. Weed seeds can remain dormant in the soil for years, waiting for proper conditions to germinate. Pasture soils are generally full of weed seeds. Cultivating will often bring many of them to the surface and stimulate sprouting.
Spray with a contact weed and grass killer. Once the weeds are dead, it may be necessary to irrigate and kill weeds again, depending on the amount of weed seed in your soil. In some situations such as pasture that has remained un-cultivated for a number of years, this process may need to be started several seasons ahead of the planting date in order to eliminate as many weeds as possible.
Preplant weed control is crucial to the success of the bermudagrass and is often overlooked. (generic roundups)
Do not apply weed control for at least 60 days after planting. We recommend one quart of 2-4, D Amine or 1.3 pints of 2-4, D LV6.
To take out unwanted grasses, use MSMA-6 at one quart per acre, 50 to 60 days after planting. Be careful with this! Turf label only!
Many people follow all the other steps then are disappointed when the pasture they have plowed and planted is full of unwanted weeds while the Bermuda seedlings struggle to survive.
Don't skip pre-plant weed control!! >BR>Before plowing spray feilds with 1 to 2 Quarts of a Round Up product or use the Generic GlyPhosates that are available at a much lower price
Drag or lightly rake the surface smooth. Be careful not to cultivate after the last weed kill as it may bring more weed seed to the surface and allow it to sprout. Rev 1/4/08
We recommend fertilization before seed application.
Follow schedue at below.
The soil temperature should be 65-70 degrees F before seeding. Planting too early in cold soils will result in slow and erratic emergence, at best. Moisture should be present for germination and seedling establishment.
Sow seed at the recommended rate. Drill to NO MORE than 1/8" deep, or broadcast seed on top of the ground and drag very lightly to no more that 1/8" deep. Run a weighted roller or cultipacker to firm the seed bed.
DO NOT DISC IN THE SEED!
Apply Agri-Gro seed booster for added assurance.
Get a soil test! This will tell you what nutriant components you need to add for healthy plant growth. This will allow you to purchase a fertilizer with the proper components that will benefit your specific situation. Ferltizer is not necessary for growing bermudagrass, but it is essential for helping the Bermuda have a well-developed root system and overall good plant health, which equated to better tolerance to adverse environmental conditions and maximum forage production and quality.
Contact your local county agent for details on getting your soil tested.
