Bermuda 419

Commonly found on golf courses, athletic fields, and natural tennis courts.

CHARACTERISTICS

Bermuda 419 is an extremely durable and versatile grass. From large commercial and roadside projects to small residential installations, Bermuda provides a good drought tolerant solution. It has better cold tolerance than Centipede and St. Augustine, making it a better option for places more than 200 miles North of the Gulf Coast.

WATERING

Bermuda 419 is well adapted to “brown” water sources and is commonly used in municipal and food industry effluent land application systems. Newly planted Bermuda will need to be watered daily for the first two weeks after it is installed and then every other day for the next two weeks. Once established, Bermuda can survive on as little as 1/2 inch of water a week depending on the soil conditions. It is always best to mimic the environment by watering heavily every few days rather than watering lightly every day. For sandier soils, 3/4 of an inch per watering will completely saturate the soil and everything else will simply percolate through. For heavier clay soils, you can water up to 2 inches at a time before saturation is reached. For this reason, heavier soils should be watered heavily but less frequently (every 3-4 days) and sandy soils will need less water but more frequency (every 2-3 days).

MOWING

Bermuda 419 can be mowed very short as is done on the fairway of a golf course, or it can be maintained as high as 2-3 inches. It will need to be mowed every week. Mow with a sharp rotary or reel mower, and it is best to remove the clippings to avoid thatch build-up.

MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

Once established Bermuda 419 should be fertilized with 1.0 lbs. of Nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. per growing month.

Bermuda 419

COLOR

Medium to dark green

TEXTURE

Thin blade with dense foliage.

SOILS

Bermuda 419 tolerates a relatively wide range of soil types but is best suited to well drained fertile soils. pH TOLERANCE Range: 5.5 to 7.0 is best.

WEAR TOLERANCE

Bermuda 419 provides the best recuperative rates of all warm season turf grasses. It is a vigorous regenerator.

SHADE TOLERANCE

Bermuda 419 has very little to no shade tolerance.

    * Woerner recommends annual pH testing and adjustment in accordance with soil test recommendations.

    * Any suitable organic based fertilizer may be subsituted for any single scheduled application.

    * Supplemental Iron applications can yield deep green color.

    * Routine scheduled application of insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides are recommended to aid in the prevention of weeds, insects and disease.

    * Product combinations of fertilizer and weed control may be utilized but Woerner recommends separate applications to target specific issues as they occur.

    * Chinch Bugs are typically active during the months June thru Sept. Monitor and apply appropriate pesticide as lable recommends.

    * Application of pesticides are indicated during summer months as these months are when pest issues are most likely to be exposed. These applications may or may not be necessary depending on individual situations.
