Planting & Growing Bermuda Grass For Pastures

SEEDING RATES:
Drill or Broadcast Rate:
15 lbs. per acre.

Plant in spring after danger of frost is over, (usually when temps are 70+ degrees) until mid-summer (April to July in most areas). Allow grass to grow up to 10 inches before the first hay harvest or grazing so as to allow for establishment of the plants. - Plant no deeper than 1/4 inch in a well prepared, firm seedbed. Check pH... should be at least 6.0 for best results. If crabgrass becomes a problem, mow or graze to control.

Cheyenne II can be overseeded with cool season annual grasses or legumes (clover, ryegrass, wheat, oats or rye.). Be sure to graze or harvest excess growth from cool season grasses or legumes by April so as to allow Cheyenne to green up in the spring.

HAY FORAGE PRODUCTION:
Cut hay at 4-5 week intervals or adjust stocking rates to maintain 2-3 inches of growth.

Planting Cheyenne II Bermuda Grass Seed

(1) Soil test and follow recommendations. Apply lime to raise the pH to at least 6.0.
(2) Prepare a firm level seedbed by disc harrowing and cultipacking. A good rule of thumb is that the heal of your foot should leave no more than a 1/8" impression in the soil when you walk across the field before planting.
(3) Plant Cheyenne II bermuda grass no deeper than 1/4" at 15 pounds per acre broadcast or drilled. Broadcast and cultipacked into the soil is the preferred method for most soil types.
(4) Seed should be planted in the spring, after all danger of frost is over. The minimum soil temp should be at least 65 degrees. Planting can be done from spring until midsummer. (Generally this is mid April to early July in most areas). In cooler climates proper fertilization with Nitrogen helps in establishing for winter survival. The key to establishment of Bermuda grass is getting it to survive the first winter season. After the first winter, survival rates of Bermuda grass go up considerably.
(5) Allow grass to grow up to 10 inches high before taking the first hay cutting or grazing the first time. (This allows for maturity of the plant and for the roots to firmly establish).
(6) If crabgrass becomes a problem, mow or graze to control.

Managing A Cheyenne II Bermuda Grass Pasture

(1) Soil test each year in late summer. Apply a fall application of phosphorus, potassium and lime according to soil test recommendations. Also apply 30 to 50 pounds of Nitrogen per acre six weeks prior to the date of the the historic first frost.
(2) Apply 50 to 75 pounds of nitrogen per acre after each hay harvest or split apply 150 pounds of nitrogen in the spring, early summer and late summer when grazing.
(3) Cut for hay at 4 to 5 week intervals or adjust stocking rate to maintain 2 to 3 inches of growth.
(4) If management intensive grazing is used, allow 2 to 3 weeks rest between grazing periods, depending on forage availability.
(5) Cheyenne II can be overseeded with cool season annual grasses or legumes (clover, ryegrass, wheat, oats, or rye).  Be sure to graze or harvest excess growth from cool season forages by April (spring time) to enable the Cheyenne II bermudagrass to green-up in the spring. This keeps the annuals/legumes from creating a competitive or shade problem.
