For pasture use, take a soil sample to your local Agricultural Agent or send it to a private lab. This testing will provide suggestions for fertilization and adjusting soil pH before planting. The soil pH should be in a 5.5 to 6.5 range. Preparing a proper seed bed is important for good seed germination and pasture establishment. The area should be cleared of all debris and cultivated to create a good bed. Bahia Grass is usually planted using a culti-packer or seed drill. This allows for proper metering of seed and planting of seed at the proper depth. Contact us for a list of companies in your area that can perform the planting for you.
