Maya Bermuda Grass Seed

*Maya is a newer improved variety of blackjack bermudagrass.

Rated one of the top varieties in the independent NTEP trials.

Maya is a new variety of seeded bermudagrass from Heritage Seeds. In the NTEP (National Turfgrass Evaluation Program) trial (2007 - 2012) Maya scored exceptionally well for improved turf performance, disease resistance, excellent colour and leaf texture. Being a seeded variety Maya will establish into a superior bermudagrass turf and has a wide range of adaptation.


Maya is recommended for sports fields, lawns, parks, golf fairways and roughs or wherever a high-quality turf is desired. Being established from seed, it is much easier to use than sprigged vegetative varieties.

Late spring seeding is best suited to bermudagrass where soil temperatures are 16-18 degrees. It is very important to use Agricote coated seed and cover the bermudagrass seeds with soil or sand (3 to 5 mm) Bare, open-to-the-air seed lying on the soil surface with no protection from wind or hot sun, cannot be kept moist enough to germinate. Ensure seeds are covered and well-watered to avoid them drying out during germination and establishment. As the plant begins to establish watering intervals can be reduced to deeper less often schedules.

Disease Resistance
This vigorous, medium fine-bladed cultivar adds excellent disease resistance to any warm-season blend throughout the hottest summer months. It exhibited no dollar spot (9.0 resistance score) and had less damage from Spring Dead Spot (only 5% damage) than any other variety. Maya shows remarkable cold tolerance making it well suited to Australia’s winters. Maya displays very good resistance (7.3) to Take All Patch and has excellent spring green-up.

For best performance Maya should be fertilised 4 - 6 times per year. In spring a high N fertiliser can be used to encourage the couch out of winter dormancy. A complete fertiliser can be used over summer as required. During March and again in early May apply a fertiliser high in potassium. This will give your lawn protection as it goes into the cold winter months.
During summer you can mow your lawn quite low, but this puts a lot of stress on the plant. Ideal mowing height is between 20-30 mm. Mowing your lawn a little higher over winter helps protect against frosts.
Being a c4 grass makes selectively taking weeds out of Maya couch a breeze.
Suggested Sowing Rates
For new seeding turf applications, it is recommended to plant 1 kg per 100m2 of Agricote Maya. Apply a starter fertiliser at recommended rates.

    Product is fine but it took several days to get it shipped to me. You invoiced me and were waiting to ship until I paid. I had already paid and tried to email and call to let you know. Never got a phone call answered and it took a week to get responses to email.
