Environmental conditions and management practices will determine individual results.
Management: Delay grazing until forage is 8" to 10" tall. On established Bermuda stands, apply 50-75 lbs. of nitrogen for each cutting of hay. If grazed, apply up to 150 lbs. of nitrogen per year in split applications throughout the summer. The last nitrogen application each year should be made a minimum of 6-8 weeks prior to the expected date of a killing frost to help prevent cold injury. Do not graze or clip for hay shorter than 2". Rotate animals more often during periods of drought stress.
• Rate: 15 lbs. per acre drilled or broadcast.
• Depth: Plant no deeper than 1/8"
