Pasto Verde® Bermuda Blend Grass

Warm Season
Seeded Variety
Pasto Verde® Bermuda Blend grass is a warm season, introduced, perennial grass used primarily for grazing and hay production. Pasto Verde® Bermuda is a blend of Giant Bermuda (NK-37) that gives this pasture Bermuda the height and Common Bermuda that gives it the thickness at the bottom making runners to help choke out the weeds. Combined, it generates a thick and tall Bermuda blend for maximum hay production and/or grazing. This grass like straight Giant Bermuda (NK-37) is excellent for horses and all livestock. This blend is a seeded variety and will continue to make seed allowing itself to propagate by seed and vegetatively as well. There are other pasture Bermuda blends in the market but we don't dilute ours with too many varieties as we want Giant Bermuda (NK-37) to be the key ingredient.
Adaptation and Maintenance: Pasto Verde® Bermuda Blend is a tall and thick pasture Bermuda grass that can produce 100 square bales per cut per acre. It can produce as many as 7 cuts per year under irrigation and fertilization (results will vary on climate, soil, watering, fertilizing and location). The hay production during the months with more hours of sunlight is higher than the winter months. Pasto Verde® Bermuda Blend is an excellent grazing and hay producer on non-irrigated fields but the yields will be lower than irrigated fields and dependent on rainfall.
Pasto Verde® Bermuda Blend is sold only as raw seed which means it has a 98% pure seed or higher unlike coated Bermuda grass seeds or Bermuda blends which only contain about 48% pure seed. Raw seed contains double the number of seeds per pound compared to that of coated seeds (the Pure Live Seed % is double).

Growth Height: 24- 36 inches
Drought Tolerance: Good
Cold Tolerance: Good
Minimum Rainfall: 20-25 inches
Planting (Seeding) Rate: 5-10 Lbs/acre
(Pure Live Seed % affects the seeding rate as well as the planting method)
Planting Time: March 1st - Mid December
(planting time window depends on the region that you are located and rain considerations)
Planting Depth: 1/8 to 1/4 inches
Soil Adaptation: Both Sandy or Clay Soils
Starter Fertilizer (15-15-15)
at a rate of 200 Lbs/acre is a catch all rule of thumb; however, if you have a fresh root plow on virgin brush, you may not need to fertilize. Soil samples can be taken and analyzed for N-P-K requirements.
Maintenance Fertilizer: (30-10-0)
is a typical fertilizer used to restore the nitrogen depletion during the grazing or baling process. Again, soil sample analysis can tell you more accurately what type on how much fertilizer you need.
