SR9554 Bermuda Grass

SR9554Turf-Type Bermuda Grass Seed is a multi-purpose Bermuda grass variety suitable for use on golf course tees, fairways and roughs, municipal parks, lawns, sports fields, cemeteries and roadsides wherever Bermuda grass is adapted worldwide.

Turfgrass trials planted in several areas of the United States, rated SR9554 Bermudagrass significantly superior for turf quality, finer texture and higher density compared to the check varieties - NuMex Sahara and Arizona Common, as well as other commercially available varieties in the same trials - Yuma, C-2 and Sonesta.

SR9554 Bermuda Grass

On many turf sites, SR9554 is a replacement for other seeded varieties, as well as offering an alternative for some vegetative hybrid Bermudagrass varieties. SR9554 is also suitable for use as an overseed into thin stands of existing hybrid and seeded Bermudagrass turf in order to improve overall turf quality, health and performance, or even to aid in transition from winter overseeded ryegrass.

SR-9554 Bermuda Grass Characteristics

SR9554 Turf-Type Bermudagrass plants show good reproductive fertility and flowering to ensure good seed production, with adequate seed yields. The variety exhibits short plant height, a distinguishing characteristic among available seed-propagated bermudagrass varieties. SR9554 Bermuda is noted for good stolon length for rapid cover and fill-in on planting sites, important for earlier opening and use of planted projects. Stolon inter-node length for SR9554 is noticeably shorter than 'common' bermuda, and a number of commercially available seeded varieties. These short internodes are consistent with the other dwarf growth characteristics of this variety. Longer stolons, with shorter internodes, along with overall shorter plant height are important factors for higher turf density and better turf quality on a project site.

TURF TRIALS & EVALUATIONS

During the development of SR9554, the breeder concentrated on superior density, short plant height and a finer texture to produce a seeded bermudagrass variety with high turf quality, and cycled the variety through several selections for winter survival. In winter survival evaluations for transition zone adaptation, SR9554 Bermuda was rated significantly better than 'common' and other commercial seeded varieties.

SR9554 seeded bermudagrass is an advanced generation synthetic variety, developed from the progeny of six clones, tracing back to plants initially collected from Germany and the Pacific Northwest of the United States, plus a selection from Cheyenne bermudagrass. The clones and their progeny went through several cycles of evaluation, crossing and further selection for turf and seed yield attributes. After several years, six superior plants were selected based on visual uniformity, dark green color, high turf density, finer texture, high seed yield and reduced plant height.

Seed from these six clones was used to plant several turf evaluation trials, while the mother plants were vegetatively increased into an isolated poly cross seed production block. The seed harvested from this block was used to plant a Pre-Breeder seed production field in Arizona. During the establishment and grow-in of this field, the plant breeder examined the field heavily to remove any off-type plants, lacking the desired turf characteristics. The Breeder seed from this block was used to plant the initial stock seed production field. Current certified seed production fields are being increased under state seed certification and O.E.C.D. rules to preserve the high quality of the SR9554 Bermuda Grass Seed variety into the commercial seed stage and to produce an adequate seed supply for expected market demand.

SR9554 Bermuda Grass Seed - This improved, certified variety has a medium-fine texture, good density with reduced growth rate for more economical and easier maintenance. Very dark green color with medium plant height. Moderately winter hardy, with a fast spread rate. SR9554 is a great variety for use on sports fields, golf fairways or roughs, and similar turf projects.
