Hello nature lover.....!

Mohawk Bermuda Grass Seed is an advanced, cold tolerant turf-type Bermuda grass variety that also doubles as a quality pasture grass. Resulting from the efforts of Lincoln Taylor, turf grass breeding consultant, emeritus from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and the Virginia Turfgrass Research Center.Mohawk Bermuda Grass

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 characterized by hot, humid summers and cold winters.

The Virginia Turfgrass Research Center developed a freeze test to evaluate dormant Bermudagrass during the winter. All eight `Mohawk' parent clones rated high in the Virginia Turfgrass Research Center freeze test and exhibited good turf quality. The clones included crosses with `Vamont', a cold tolerant variety from Virginia used for sports fields and cold tolerant strains from West Virginia and Kentucky.

Mohawk Bermudagrass Advantage - Cold Tolerant - Salt Tolerant

Mohawk LogoMohawk has increased turf density combined with medium fine texture and dark green color. Its turf density is similar to Sultan and its leaf texture is much finer than NuMex SAHARA. Since 1993, Mohawk has delivered improved turf performance and cold tolerance in Virginia trials. It is currently growing in trials in Arkansas, Kentucky, North Carolina and five locations in China.  In Oklahoma State University freeze chamber tests designed to kill one-half of the tested plants; Mohawk withstood temperatures of - 6.75 Centigrade. - Note that increased cold hardiness may result in later green-up in some weather situations after cold winters.

Mohawk may be planted across the tropical and sub-tropical climate zones of the world where Bermudagrass is currently grown and into the transition zone where it has demonstrated the ability to survive winter conditions better than Common Bermudagrass, NuMex Sahara Bermudagrass and others.

Salt Tolerant: Mohawk is considered to be one of the most salt tolerant variety of improved seeded Bermudas available.

Uses for Mohawk Bermudagrass

For premium turf grass use applications such as golf courses (fairways, tees and roughs), sports turf (baseball, football and soccer), parks and lawns where fine textured, dark green Bermudagrass with increased turf density, durability and cold tolerance is needed. --- Soil temps must be above 65 degrees for best germination.
