There have been numerous research reports detailing the proper seeding windows to establish Kentucky bluegrass in the Midwest. I wanted to share a couple of photos from a project the J&D Turf team has been working on in Columbus, IN.
Columbus North High School constructed a new baseball complex with two fields. Due to the construction schedule, the new JV field was seeded on Aug 28, 2012 with Barenbrug HGT bluegrass. Here are photos taken of the field on September 27, 2012:
The new varsity field was seeded on September 10, 2012 with Barenbrug HGT bluegrass. Here is a photo taken of the field on September 27, 2012:
Needless to say, seeding dates do matter. The closer the August 15 the better. Look for continued updates on the project later this fall. Do you think the varsity field will catch up to the JV field by the end of the growing season?
