Bermuda (Giant) 

          (Cynodon dactylon)          

Common Bermuda grass is used primarily for pastures, lawns and golf courses. It is a hardy perennial grass with short, flat, bluish green leaves. It has runners that allow it to spread rapidly. It succeeds on most all fertile soils and is extremely drought-resistant.

We recommend planting hulled seed for quicker germination and growth. Plant hulled seed anytime when danger of frost is past. Plant on firm seedbed and cover as lightly as possible, no more than M cm (¼ in.) deep.

VARIETIES:

NK-37
NK-37 Giant Bermuda grass is very similar in appearance to the popular Coastal Bermuda Grass. It has the same erect giant growth and vigorous spreading habits that are associated with the Coastal variety. The one major difference: Coastal Bermuda grass does not produce seed. NK-37 does.

NK-37 Giant Bermuda grass grows tall enough to be cut for hay, even on most low fertility soils. At Northrup King’s Yuma, Arizona, test grounds, measurements showed that NK-37 averaged 65 cm & (30 in.) in height while common Bermuda averaged only 35 to 41 cm (14 to 16 in.) on the same type soil. Four or five cuttings a year are average for NK-37, but yields can be boosted still further with nitrogen fertilizers.
