Establishing Warm-Season Grasses from Seed

Aaron Patton, Ph.D.

As costs continue to rise, you find yourself working to stretch your budget dollars. Recent research has demonstrated that seeded warm-season grasses can be successfully established when using the correct procedures and techniques. Bermudagrass, seashore paspalum and zoysiagrass can all be established by seed and are discussed in this webcast. The high cost of sod may have prevented you from renovating to new and improved cultivars. Planting using seed costs approximately 10 percent of the total cost of planting sod, but until recently, seeded varieties of warm-season grasses and their establishment procedures for golf courses have not been available. Aaron Patton, Ph.D., covers appropriate establishment strategies and appropriate herbicides, based on seedling development for each of the turfgrasses covered.
