Pennington Mohawk Bermudagrass Hulled Penkoted 25 lb
Mohawk is one of the most cold tolerant bermuda varieties available. It is high yielding and can be used for both grazing and hay production. When compared to other popular seeded bermudas, Mohawk is a proven top performer. With superior cold tolerance, it is well adapted from the southern areas of California, Oklahoma and Missouri, east to Virginia.
Use Instructions: Method Plant when soil moisture is adequate. For spring planting, delay seeding until soil temperatures average 65 degrees or higher at a 4 inch depth. For summer plantings, do not plant when ambient temperatures are expected to be above the middle 90’s. If weeds become problematic, mow the field periodically to reduce competition with the developing bermuda seedlings. To further reduce competition from weeds and grasses, delay the application of fertilizers containing nitrogen until the bermuda seedlings have fully emerged.For Clean-tilled Ground — Broadcast Prepare the ground well in advance. This allows the first flush of crabgrass and other weed competition to germinate and be killed by an application of a non-residual and non-selective herbicide like glyphosate before planting Tierra Verde. Clean-till the area with a disc, then level and smooth the area. Use a culti-packer to prepare a firm seedbed before planting. Several passes may be necessary to achieve proper firmness. Broadcast the seed and culti-pack once more to get good seed to soil contact. Bermudagrass seed will not germinate in a fluffy, loose seedbed. For No-Till Drill Take added precaution to ensure seed are not dropping too deep; 1/8" or less is ideal. One method to prevent deep planting is to pull the drill’s drop tubes out of the openers and let the seed fall behind the opener to be pressed into the loosened soil by the press wheel. Ensure that existing residue is not too thick for seedlings to emerge and that the seed is making good soil contact beneath the residue.To Thicken Existing Stands If seed are to be broadcast, loosen the soil surface in the bare areas prior to seeding by scratching with a finger drag or by light disking. After seed are broadcasted, use a culti-packer or similar roller device to press the seed into the soil and to firm the ground. If using a no-till drill, see instructions for No-Till Drill.
