Please use the map and chart above as a guide in helping you determine the proper type of lawn or pasture grass seed for your particular area. It is always recommended that before planting, you verify with your local agricultural groups before planting as varying soil types, rainfall, animal life, and temperatures can affect the type of seed you intend to plant. Seed rates listed are an average of what is normally planted. Be aware that different seeding rates and planting methods will change the yield of the planting.
