Overview

Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) is a warm-season perennial forage that forms the basis of most forage systems throughout the southeastern United States. It is a deep-rooted, sod-forming grass that spreads by means of stolons (horizontal aboveground stems) and rhizomes (underground stems) that form new plants. It can grow 15 to 24 inches tall. Productive during the months of June, July, and August, it produces much dry matter for grazing or hay production when soil moisture is not limiting. (6 pages)
