Hancock's Erosion Control Seed Mix - Spring & Summer (March - October)

33% - Pensacola Bahiagrass

33% - Un-Hulled Common Bermuda

34% - Browntop Millet

This mix is shipped March through October, unless otherwise requested.

Our Spring and Summer Erosion Control grass seed mixture contains 33% Common Un-Hulled Bermuda , 33% Pensacola Bahiagrass and 34% Browntop Millet .  The Pensacola Bahiagrass and Common Bermuda grass will interlace with one another providing the permanent erosion control vegetation. Pensacola Bahiagrass is a bunch grass spreading by root stolens under the soil and the Common Bermuda spreads by surface runners.  The two grass varieties coexist very well in most any soil condition.  The fast germinating Browntop Millet will germinate in 2 to 4 days with proper soil moisture.  The Browntop Millet will prevent soil and seed erosion while effectively providing an adequate germination environment for the permanent grass varieties. Planting Browntop Millet in excess of 50 lbs. per acre can cause more harm than good as it absorbs all the available resources needed to establish the permanent Bermuda and Bahiagrass.  This seed mixture has proven to establish nearly instant ground cover vegetation if properly applied.   Our Erosion Control mixture should be applied on level ground applications at 100 lbs. per acre.  For slopes, drains, ditches, holding areas, washouts and all other extreme erosion prone areas apply 150-250 lbs. per acre.  To insure a successful seeding and establishment experience please refer closely to the planting guide provided with your order.

Hancock's Erosion Control Seed Mix - Fall & Winter (November - February)

33% - Pensacola Bahiagrass

33% - Un-Hulled Common Bermuda

34% - Gulf Annual Ryegrass

This mix is shipped November through February, unless otherwise requested.

Our Fall & Winter Erosion Control seed mixture contains 33% Common Un-Hulled Bermuda , 33% Pensacola Bahiagrass and 34% Annual Rye grass .  The added Annual Rye grass will provide an effective fall and winter erosion control.  As the nighttime spring temperatures increase to 65-70 degrees the Annual Rye grass will begin to die.  As the Annual Rye grass begins to die the root structure of the Annual Rye will provide soil and seed erosion prevention. The existing root structure of the Annual Rye will provide the ideal germination environment for the Pensacola Bahiagrass and the Common Bermuda.  Seeded at 10 lbs. per 1000 square feet or 100 lbs. per acre this mixture will effectively establish low cost permanent erosion control. 

Hancock Farm & Seed Company also offers Custom Blended Seed Mixtures for unique applications such as DOT bid specifications, Airports, County and State seeding applications.
