"Planting and Maintenance Instructions are Included"
PENKOTED seed has been coated (treated) with a green colored liquid seed coating material containing a specific fungicide, a natural insecticide and a growth stimulant. These ingredients then dry on the seed and are time-released into the soil as needed once the seeds are planted. The coating helps protect each seedling from soil born diseases and insects. The coating also makes the seeds less attractive to birds.

New Lawns - Plant 5 to 10 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.
Over seeding an existing lawn - Bare spots can be easily filled in by spreading the area by hand or with a spreader. Remember after spreading the seed to lightly rake in the seed to cover no deeper than 1/4 inch. To properly over seed the entire lawn use 2 to 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. after removing as much unwanted dead or living vegetation.
New Pastures - Plant 25 to 100 lbs. per acre.
(25 lbs. takes 12 - 24 months to fully sod the pasture.)
*The more seed applied to the lawn or pasture on the first planting the faster the lawn or pasture will fully establish a sod or grass base and prevent future over seeding to fill in bare spots.
Over seeding an existing pasture: Over seeding rates depend on the amount of established or existing grass in the pasture area. Common applications for over seeding are 25 - 50 lbs. per acre.
Lawn Fertilization: Apply 5 - 10 lbs. of 16-04-08 slow release fertilizer per 1000 sq. ft. four times a year(Late Spring, Mid Summer, Late Summer, Early Fall) for the first two years. After a fully established lawn has been accomplished apply 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. two times (Mid Summer,Late Summer) a year.
Pasture Fertilization: Apply 250 - 350 lbs. of 16-04-08 slow release fertilizer per acre in Late Spring, Mid Summer and Early Fall. Animals that are grazing will damage the Bahiagrass pasture if the pasture is not properly fertilized annually. The grass must be provided with adequate nutrients to compete with the animals.
