ARGENTINE BAHIAGRASS SEEDS
Plant 18 lbs per/A
Argentine is a Bahia "selection" of bahiagrass that originated from the country of Argentina in South America.
The variety was developed by a university initially for its forage production qualities.
Argentine has broad leaves with a good darker green color, making it more suitable for lawns in Florida and other Coastal Southern states.
Its susceptibility to cold, results in winter kill of stands planted North of approximately Tifton, Georgia.
It is used extensively for lawns because of its attractive look and the fact that it produces less "objectionable" seed heads than other Bahias.
Argentine is also used extensively in Florida and other coastal areas for pasture purposes. Produces tremendous forage under proper conditions.
Normally germinates in 10-20 days with 14 days considered the normal germinating time under ideal conditions.
Seeding Rate for Pasture: 25-50 lbs. per acre.
Higher rates can result in fast establishment.
Most agronomists recommend at least 25-30 lbs. per acre.
