Bahia Grass Seed Produce Economical Lawns for Southern Climates

Hancock Seed Company Offers Public Four Seed Varieties

DADE CITY, FL--(Marketwire - January 25, 2011) - Hancock Seed Company is growing, harvesting, processing and distributing Bahia grass seed varieties, which are the most used grasses in the southern climate for lawn grass, directly to the public.

Bahia grass is a warm-season perennial grass used primarily for lawn grass, pasture grass and erosion control grass seed applications. The Bahia grass seed is known for its ability to adapt to sandy soil conditions and to provide drought and insect resistance. This grass is grown throughout the Coastal Plain and Gulf Coast regions of the southern United States and Florida. In Florida, it is estimated that Bahia grass seed is used on more land area than any other single pasture species, approximately 2.5 million total acres.

"Bahia grass forms an extensive root system, about eight feet deep, which makes it one of our most drought tolerant grasses available," Chris Hancock, Vice President of Hancock Seed Company said. "Bahia grass does not require high inputs of fertilizers, and it can survive in areas of no irrigation."

Bahia grass seed is available in four different varieties for home lawn: Argentine Bahia grass seed, Pensacola Bahia grass seed, Tifton 9 Bahia grass seed and TifQuik Bahia grass seed. All four varieties are available in seed form, which makes its establishment relatively cheap.
