What is the Best Overseeding Rates for Patriot Bermudagrass?

Great question.  Depends on the goal of the playing surface.  Do you wish to have a little green while wrapping up fall field hockey, or 100% coverage for an NFL practice field?

Here are two examples from late last week.  Both fields are 100% Patriot bermudagrass:

DePauw University field hockey - seeding rate 10 lbs per 1,000 sq ft in mid Sept.

Indianapolis Colts Practice Complex - seeding rate 10 lbs per 1,000 sq ft every 14 days Sept 1 - Nov 15.

Bottom line, both applications work for the end user to achieve their goals.  So, the overseeding rate depends on level of play, amount of play, time of year for play and overseeding budget.
