SR 9554 Bermuda Seed - SR 9554 turf-type bermuda grass seed is a seeded bermuda grass is an advanced turf-type seeded bermuda grass selected for its unique genetics combined with a dwarf, low growing plant height. SR 9554 variety traces its origins back to six clones initially collected from Germany and the Pacific Northwest of the United States, plus a selection from Cheyenne bermuda grass. Progeny from these clones were further crossed over several years and selected based on uniformity, dark green color, high turf quality, finer texture and lower plant height, stress and disease resistance. Further screening was done to ensure high seed yield and improved stress and disease resistance in seed production.
SR 9554 is noted for long stolon length for rapid cover and fill in on newly seeded sites. In addition, the stolon internode length for SR 9554 is noticeably shorter than 'common' bermuda grass and a number of commercially available seeded varieties, which results in higher density and therefore higher quality turf. These improvements, together with its dark green color, make SR 9554 suitable for use throughout the bermuda grass zone of the world. SR 9554 Turf-Type Seeded Bermuda grass has proven to be a perfect choice for many turfgrass project, including golf tees, fairways and roughs, sports fields, parks and home lawns.
SR 9554 is ideally suited as a straight variety, or as a component in a certified blend, such as LaPrima. It can be seeded into new turfgrass projects, or interseeded into existing seeded or vegetative bermuda to improve the overall quality of a turfgrass site. SR 9554 is an economical alternative to vegetative bermuda ESTABLISHMENT (sprigs or sod) turfgrass applications.
