Bermudagrass is the primary turfgrass for much of the temperate and tropical world. Originating in Africa and India, this grass has the ability to withstand extremes in climatic and growing conditions around the world. “Common” bermudagrass seed has been used for many years as a preferred turf surface for uses as diverse as professional sports fields, parks and home lawns. In recent years, plant breeders have devoted considerable efforts to improving the overall turf quality and performance of the seeded bermudagrass species, Cynodon dactylon, in order to provide turfgrass managers with an economic alternative to the high cost of installing and maintaining hybrid bermudagrass sod.

This scientifically formulated blend of the top performing seeded turf-type bermudagrass varieties, delivers excellent results throughout the temperate, subtropical and tropical regions of the world. Recent research has also shown LaPrima to be an excellent resource for the transition zone turfgrass manager.

This top quality turf-type bermudagrass product is easily planted from seed, allowing for much faster and far less expensive turf-grass establishment, when compared to the popular vegetative bermuda varieties.
