The Benefits of Mohawk Bermuda Grass For Pasture

Improved Forage Bermuda Grass

Mohawk Bermuda Grass Seed, when used in pastures, produces an advanced bermuda grass with increased sod density and cold tolerance. Mohawk bermuda grass has a medium fine texture and dark green color. Mohawk has delivered improved performance and cold tolerance in Virginia trials as a pasture grass since 1993.

Originally developed as a turf grass, Mohawk is well know in the lawn grass industry as a good quality, cold tolerant bermuda grass variety that can withstand the temperate weather of the northern transition zone in the USA. Mohawk is yet another grass developed for lawns etc. that also serves as an excellent pasture grass.

Other benefits of planting Mohawk Bermuda Grass in Pastures Include:

  • High Yielding

  • Excellent for Grazing and Hay Production

  • Strong seedling vigor, Quick coverage, Durable

  • Deep-rooted for increased drought tolerance

  • Penkoted™ seed for easier planting and increased establishment success

  • Will survive winter conditions better than most other bermuda grass

Development Of Mohawk Bermuda Grass

Mohawk is an advanced synthetic turf-type Bermudagrass variety that resulted from the efforts of Lincoln Taylor, turf grass breeding consultant, emeritus from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the Virginia Turfgrass Research Center.

The goal was to develop a high quality seeded Bermudagrass variety with cold tolerance sufficient to survive most severe winters in the northern transition zone of the United States. This area which is located below the cold temperate zone is also characterized by hot, humid summers and cold winters. The resulting grass species was the  cold tolerant bermuda grass named Mohawk.

Fact: In Oklahoma State University freeze chamber tests designed to kill one-half of the tested plants, Mohawk bermuda grass withstood temperatures of minus 6.75 Centigrade. Please note that increased cold may result in delayed green-up for bermudagrass when temperatures warm.

Mohawk Bermuda Characteristics & Planting Information

  • Type: Warm season perennial
  • Adaptation: Across the southern 1/3 of the U.S. from California to Virginia.
  • Soil: Mohawk is well-suited to sandy soils but will thrive in most well-drained loam soils.

Pasture Usage: Mohawk bermuda grass can be used for both grazing and hay production throughout the spring and summer months under good management practices.

Planting Rate:

  • Pastures - 15 lbs. per acre
  • Tees: 3-4 lbs. / 1000 sq.ft
  • Fairways: 100-130 lb. / acre
  • Roughs: 100-130 lb. / acre
  • Lawns 2-3 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.

Planting Date: Late spring through early summer when soil temperatures are 65° F or above. Plow and cultipack to develop a firm seedbed. Proper firmness is indicated by a heel print no more than 1/8" deep in the soil.

Depth: 1/8" depth maximum. Competition from other grasses and weeds is the number one reason for bermudagrass stand failure. Taking steps to reduce this competition will increase your chances of success.

Fertilizer: Due to varying soil conditions and types it is necessary to conduct a soil test each year in order to supply the proper nutrients. Apply 20-30 lbs. of nitrogen at planting time. When the new plants start to run, apply 50-60 lbs. of nitrogen. After the stand is established, apply 70-100 lbs. of nitrogen after each cutting.

Management: If grazed, apply up to 150 lbs. of nitrogen per year in split applications throughout the summer. Last fertilizer application each year should be done 4 to 6 weeks before a killing frost to increase cold tolerance. Delay grazing until forage is 8" to 10" tall. Do not graze or clip for hay shorter than 2." Rotate animals more often during periods of drought stress.
