botanical name: Cynodon dactylon
Bermuda grass is widely used for all kinds of turf in warm humid
and warm semi-arid regions. It thrives best where the average daily temperature is above 25 degrees. Celsius and stops growing under 16 degrees, turning brown at temperature below 10 degrees. Bermuda grass does not tolerate shade, poor drainage or high soil acidity.
It is a very drought resistent grass but for normal growth it needs water and can’t be grown in arid regions without irrigation.
Due to good wear tolerance and good recuperation, it is an ideal sports turf grass. For germination a warm soil is required.
To overcome dormancy it is advisable to mix Bermuda with a winter growing Kentucky bluegrass.
