Cheyenne II Bermuda Grass Seed
Back

Cheyenne II Bermuda Grass has gathered Pennington's "Yield Up" branding because of its sizable hay yields, outstanding palatability, and high leaf-to-stem ratio. These traits, along with its tolerances, make it an optimal Bermuda pasture choice.

Product Details

  • Produces a more palatable leafy forage and hay
  • Cold and heat tolerant     
  • Easy to establish from seed - drill or broadcast 
  • Economical alternative to sprigging 
  • Greater flexibility in your planting schedule


Product
 Information

Cheyenne II Bermuda is a five clone synthetic variety developed by Judy Brede for Pennington Seed, Inc. Cheyenne II bermuda grass seed originates from plants selected for their cold tolerance and vigorous growth habit. Cheyenne bermuda establishes rapidly and provides cover in 45 to 60 days under desirable growing conditions.  Cheyenne Bermuda grass was one of the highest yielding varieties in a test of forage bermudagrass varieties conducted in Athens and Calhoun, Georgia, producing over 7.5 to 8 tons per acre of hay. This rate of production was comparable to sprig-planted Russell bermudagrass. Cheyenne Bermuda  is as cold hardy as Coastal bermudagrass and more cold tolerant than Tifton 85 or Tifton 44. Cheyenne may be planted in the Transition Zone states such as Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tennessee as well as the traditional bermudagrass growing areas of the Southern United States. 

Cheyenne Bermuda should be planted in Late spring through early summer when soil temperatures are 65 degrees Fahrenheit or above. Plow and cultipack to develop a firm seedbed. Proper firmness is indicated by a heel print no more than 1/8 inch deep in the soil.

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.

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.

Cheyenne is a Yield Up brand because of its tremendous hay yields, outstanding palatability and excellent leaf to stem ratio. Cheyenne is a certified variety that is guaranteed not to revert back to common. Cheyenne seed gives you greater flexibility in your planting schedule and approximately 300 times more plants per square foot than sprigs.

Planting Guide:

1. Soil test and follow recommendations. Apply lime to raise the pH to at least 6.0.
2. Prepare a well-worked up, firm seedbed by disc harrowing and cultipacking.
3. Plant Cheyenne bermudagrass no deeper than ¼ inch deep at the following rates - 10 pounds per acre if drilling and 15 pounds per acre if broadcasting.
4. Seed should be planted in the spring, after the danger of frost is over (minimum soil temperature should be 65º F), until midsummer (from April to July in most areas).
5. Allow grass to grow up to 10 inches high before taking the first hay harvest or grazing.
6. If crabgrass becomes a problem, mow or graze to control. 

    Management Guide:

    1. Soil test each year in late summer. Apply phosphorous, potassium and lime according to soil test recommendations. Apply 30 to 50 pounds of Nitrogen per acre six weeks prior to the date of the historic first frost.
    2. Apply 50 to 75 pounds of Nitrogen per acre after each hay harvest or split apply 150 pounds of Nitrogen in spring, early summer and late summer for grazing.
    3. Cut for hay at 4 to 5 week intervals or adjust stocking rate to maintain 2 to 3 inches of growth.
    4. If management intensive grazing is used, allow 2 to 3 weeks rest between grazing periods, depending on forage availability.
    5. Cheyenne can be overseeded with cool season annual grasses or legumes (clover, ryegrass, wheat, oats, or rye). Be sure to graze or harvest excess growth from cool season grasses or legumes by April to enable the Cheyenne bermudagrass to green-up in the spring.

      2. Apply 50 to 75 pounds of Nitrogen per acre after each hay harvest or split apply 150 pounds of Nitrogen in spring, early summer and late summer for grazing.
      3. Cut for hay at 4 to 5 week intervals or adjust stocking rate to maintain 2 to 3 inches of growth.
      4. If management intensive grazing is used, allow 2 to 3 weeks rest between grazing periods, depending on forage availability.
      5. Cheyenne can be overseeded with cool season annual grasses or legumes (clover, ryegrass, wheat, oats, or rye). Be sure to graze or harvest excess growth from cool season grasses or legumes by April to enable the Cheyenne bermudagrass to green-up in the spring.

      It is coming up!!! From all I read I was concerned about planting too deep. I used a cultipacker after spreading with push seeder and it is sprouting. May be ready for horses next spring.
