SPRING SEEDING

Cool season species germinate soon after seeding. Germination of warm season species generally occurs within three weeks of the soil temperature reaching 55° F Seed loss due to decay and wildlife consumption is minimized. Seed-to-soil contact should be accomplished by working the seed into the soil 1/4”-1/2” deep. Seeding can be delayed until weed control is applied in order to improve establishment. Irrigation during periods of dry weather is necessary for proper germination. Light mulching is an important element of seeding to protect both the seed and soil and retain moisture. Native grass biomass seedings are generally done during the spring when soil temperature is near 55° F and rising.
