  • Use Instructions: Establishing a StandTo establish a stand, broadcast the seed at a rate of 10 to 20 pounds per acre. Or seed can be drilled in 20-inch rows with vegetable planting equipment at the rate of 10 pounds per acre. When drilling, it is best to plant in dry seed bed and irrigate-up, unless the soil is disked first to kill germinated weed seed.Planting depth is extremely important. For best results seed should be planted as near 1/4 inch deep as possible. Do not plant too deep. It is a good practice to apply a light irrigation (or after planting in a moist seedbed). This keeps the soil from crusting and the seed moist. It will be about 90 days from date of planting until first harvest. Do not mow or graze closer than 1-1/2 inches during the first 2 or 3 harvests.Fertilization: Bermudagrass is a heavy and efficient user of nitrogen. Up to 300 pounds of actual nitrogen per acre per year can be used. This should be applied 3 to 4 uniform application of 75 to 80 pounds per acre. The first application should be made in early March as the grass begins to turn green, and the last application in late August or early September.Irrigation: The water requirements of bermudagrass will vary slightly from one year to the next an from one area to another, but a total of 5 to 6 acre feet of water per acre per year is needed.
