Consider planting hybrid bermudagrass varieties as forage to establish pasture or hayfields. Variety testing at Mississippi State University has shown that although most hybrid bermudagrasses propagate only through vegetative material, they can yield more than seeded bermudagrass (Lang, 2010). If you sprig a field instead of seeding it, carefully consider variety selection and source of sprigs (Lemus et al, 2010).
