    Planting & Growing Sahara Bermuda Grass Seed

    Sahara II Bermudagrass seed will germinate in 7 to 10 days and a desirable turf will be established in 60 to 70 days when recommended seeding rates and management practices are followed.

    WHEN TO PLANT: Soil temperature should be 70° F -- Air Temperatures 80°+ -- and no danger of frost is anticipated. (Late spring / Early summer is best planting time in most areas / depending on rainfall moisture or irrigation availability) Analysis of a soil sample is suggested in order to adjust the pH level to 6.5 to 7. A starter fertilizer should be applied based on recommendation from the soil analysis. Seed to soil contact is vital to good establishment. Sahara should be broadcast over the prepared seed bed then raked or in some way dragged to insure good soil contact. A light application of top dressing could be applied but should not exceed 1/8 inch.

    WATERING: Newly seeded Sahara II bermuda grass should be irrigated with light frequent applications to be kept moist but not to the point of run-off. This program should continue during the germination period and continue for ten (10) days after visual emergence. Once established less frequent but deepened watering should be initiated in order to establish a strong root system.

    MOWING: Once Sahara II had reached a growing height of one (1) inch, begin mowing at 3/4 inch. Continue this program for 14 days or until fully established. Sahara may be maintained at mowing heights as low as 3/4 inch and as high as 2.5-3 inches. If a mowing height of over one (1) inch is desired, follow the recommended mowing pattern of cutting at 3/4 inch until fully established then raise height to optimum in 1/4 inch increments. If mowing heights are 1-2 inches, you should begin mowing grass (and any weeds) when heights are 1/3 above maintenance height desired. Observations have shown that frequent mowing and lower cutting heights will enhance color and improve deep root development. Mowing below 1” will usually require the use of a reel mower.

    • Growing Region: Temperate, sub-tropical and tropical climate zones
    • Soil: Grows well on all types from coarse to fine textured soil
    • pH Range: Adapted to an extremely broad pH range
    • Salinity: Can tolerate high saline conditions; however, during establishment soil moisture drainage is very important
    • Fertilization: Requires adequate nitrogen fertilizer for best results; this is usually equal to 1 pound actual N (Nitrogen) per 1000 sq. ft. (.5 kg per 100 m2) per month during the growing season
    • Mowing Height: 1/2 - 11/2 inches (1.25-3.75cm): To encourage improved root development and maximum drought avoidance qualities, mowing height should be 3/4 of an inch (1.88cm) or greater

    Planting Rate For Coated Sahara II Bermudagrass Seed

    • LAWN PLANTING RATES - Plant 2 to 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet
      1.5 lb. per 1000 sq. ft. when overseeding.
    • Planting Depth - 1/8 to 1/4" -- no deeper
    • Sahara responds well to 1/2 lb. of Nitrogen per application. Repeat applications only as grass shows need due to fading color.
    • PASTURE RATES - 15 to 20 lbs. per acre.
