Hello nature lover.....!

Bermuda Grass Seed Establishment Rates

Certified Coated Turf-Type Bermudagrass Seed has approximately 1,000,000 seeds per pound. At a planting rate of 2 pounds of seed per 1,000 sq. feet that would be 85 lbs. of bermuda grass seed for 1 Acre which is equal to approximately 14 seeds per square inch.

The Types of Bermuda Grass Seed & Germination Rates

SEED TYPES: Bermudagrass seed is available in several forms - hulled, un-hulled and coated. Un-hulled seed is the natural seed form, which will germinate in 7 - 14 days. Hulled seed has had the outer skin (hull) removed for faster germination, 4 - 7 days to germinate. Coated seed has been pelleted with clay containing nutrients to improve ease of planting and establishment, germination in 5 - 10 days. In all 3 forms, minimum germination of quality seed is 80%, with seed counts ranging from 1 to 2 million seeds per pound.

Planting From Seed You Have These Possibilities Of Success

One Square Inch of Planted Grass Seed

PERFECT POTENTIAL POSSIBILITY:

Each seedling is capable of reaching 1 - 3 feet across within 6 - 8 weeks with correct temperature, water, etc.

 
One Square Incjh Of Actual Seed Stand

ACTUAL REALITY:

Possibly half the seeds are planted too deep or too shallow or are eaten by ants, birds, etc. Still 7 seeds per square inch should germinate - each seedling capable of becoming 1 - 3 feet across in 6 - 8 weeks

Hybrid Bermuda Grass Sprig Establishment Rate

Hybrid bermudagrass sprigs - initial application population will never  match seedling population on a golf course fairway, sports field, park, school, commercial property, etc. The usual sprig application rate would be 2 - 3 live nodes per square inch (hydro mulched), or fewer with common sprig planters.

Plant Bermuda Grass Seed Instead of Sprigging

Seeded bermuda grass can establish a usable lawn or sports field surface in 8-10 weeks, when planted during active growing times (warm late spring temps) and maintained with adequate irrigation and fertilization.

The added benefit of saving a lot of money should tip the weight on this decision as sprigging bermuda grass is costly when compared to planting seed.
