For pasture I'd go with Pensacola or common Bermuda also . Or a mixCaustic Burno":1rzxwuym said:houstoncutter":1rzxwuym said:Going to redo some pastures.... Will probably use bahai seed. What variety would you use and why..... Its clay loam land that gets wet feet at times... and ph is normal
Tifton 9, HC it is more expense or Cheyene II Bermuda if you can find the seed. Seed goes a lot farther on the Bermuda per acre, but you will have to spray it ever year to keep the bahia out.
Pensacola is good grass as well these three I have found to be the best forage producers for our area.
My hayfield is Tifton 9 it it green's up faster and stay's in production longer than Argentina.
The cheapest and quickest route is common bermuda comes up quick and spreads like crazy, Bahia wil take it over eventually.
That's what I was told to when I bought the sprigs . The guy I got them from said the hooves would shatter the stem on the t 85 . But it sure makes nice hay .hooknline":2qtiq8ct said:But my understanding is the tifton 85 is better suited to hay production because of its short growth period.
Never seen this happen. There flat out is no better bermuda for grazing or for hay. It will stand drought better and use fertilizer more efficiently.JSCATTLE":298jepxp said:

houstoncutter":3jpdqh3s said:Bermuda is not an option, this pasture gets wet feet and it is not possible to improve on the drainage, because it is in a flood plane. Bermuda's have their place, but I dont think this is one of them...Evertime it flooded, you would be getting a new type of grass seed or weed to kill with some herbicide...Which makes we wonder many times about bermuda grass. You ever notice how many types of sprays their are just for bermuda grasses...I need something tough, plant and forget it!
I was more interested in the bahai types that some of you have used and why. Open to all suggestions for other grasses, that will work in this area, but remember they have to be able to withstand wet feet
I sometimes wonder if you bermuda grass producers use a sharp pencil when you are figuring up the costs of your grass production. I know you get increased production and quality at times, but mercy u guys have to make several trips a year with the tractor and spray rig fighting weeds and bahai
