Need suggestions for varieties to consider for planting a new Bermudagrass pasture in the low desert. I’ve just emailed the local County Extension contact but am wondering if anyone here has ideas. The area I’m in has Bermudagrass hay growers so I did ask the CE which varieties they grow.
My biggest reason for posting here is to ask whether anyone grows Tifton 85–which seems to have the best nutritional value and is not as fine as Coastal–“at home” on their small farm? This variety was developed in Georgia and is grown in Texas, so I’m hoping it could handle extreme heat. Is there an online source for the sprigs (it must be vegetatively propagated) that would ship a couple bushels?
