Breeder: Pure Seed Testing, Dr. Melodee Fraser
For establishment of an aggressive, dense Bermuda grass turf where a low growing fine textured appearance is desired. Excellent for lawns, parks, golf courses (fairways, tees, and roughs), and sports turf.
Area of Adaptation: In the tropical and sub-tropical climate zones where Bermuda grass is currently used. Germination: Panama should be planted when soil temperatures are consistently above 70 degrees F, in full sun on well drained soil. Proper drainage is essential for successful establishment and the development of mature healthy turf.
Care must be taken not to cover the seed with too much soil – no more than ¼ inch covering the seed is recommended. Soil moisture around the seed must be maintained for about 1-2 weeks.
Panama has excellent seedling vigor. Under ideal conditions, germination may begin within 10 to 14 days.
Allow 14 to 18 days for completion. Full coverage may be attained in 4 to 6 weeks. If planting is occurring early or late in the season, more time may be needed for establishment.
After most of the grass has filled in and when the blades of grass are 1/3 taller than your desired mowing height, you are ready for your first mowing. It is recommended that no more than 1/3 of the leaf blade be removed per mowing.
Winter overseeding of dormant Bermudagrass may be done for year round green color, but is not generally recommended on turf less than 6 to 8 months of age. Immature turf may be damaged by the vertical cutting and scalping procedures, leaving it unable to compete with the overseeded species during the spring transition.
