Adaptation: Across the southern 1/3 of the U.S. from California to Virginia. Mohawk Bermuda grass is well-suited to sandy soils but will thrive in most well-drained loam soils.
Uses: Mohawk Bermuda grass can be used for both grazing and hay production throughout the spring and summer months under good management practices.
Planting: Rate: 15 lbs. per acre
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.
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.
