Establishing Warm-Season Grasses from Seed
Aaron Patton, Ph.D.
As costs continue to rise, you find yourself working to stretch your budget dollars.
Recent research has demonstrated that seeded warm-season grasses can be successfully
established when using the correct procedures and techniques. Bermudagrass, seashore
paspalum and zoysiagrass can all be established by seed and are discussed in this
webcast. The high cost of sod may have prevented you from renovating to new and
improved cultivars. Planting using seed costs approximately 10 percent of the total
cost of planting sod, but until recently, seeded varieties of warm-season grasses
and their establishment procedures for golf courses have not been available. Aaron
Patton, Ph.D., covers appropriate establishment strategies and appropriate herbicides,
based on seedling development for each of the turfgrasses covered.
