Bermudagrass Conversion Season is Here - DePauw University

DePauw University will transition another cool season field over to bermudagrass this summer.  I will follow the progress as I assist Rob Harper, Grounds Manager, with the grow-in.  Here is a photo of the Patriot bermudagrass field we completed last year.  The field has rye overseeding in place.  The ryegrass will be sprayed out with Katana this week.

Next, is a photo of the field that will be converted this summer.  The existing DePauw soccer field was sprayed with glyphosate and tilled.  The J&D Turf crew will be on site to laser grade the rootzone this week.  Then, the field will be seeded with Riviera bermudagrass.

Look for additional posts this summer as the J&D Turf crew assists with numerous bermudagrass fields in central Indiana.
