Sahara Couch

Compared to common bermudagrass, Sahara is more uniform, has increased density and improved summer green colour. Sahara is superior in drought tolerance compared to common and many other bermudagrass varieties. It is a good choice where a low thatching improved common type is required.

  • Improved overall turf performance compared to common bermudagrass
  • Increased durability and wear tolerance
  • Reduced plant height
  • Increased density
  • Tolerant to saline conditions
  • Low in thatch
  • Lower mowing heights with less scalping
  • Medium texture with medium green colour

Description

Compared to common couch (bermudagrass), Sahara is more uniform, has increased density and improved summer green colour. Sahara is superior in drought tolerance compared to common and many other couch varieties. It is a good choice where a low thatching improved common type is required.

  • Improved overall turf performance compared to common bermudagrass
  • Increased durability and wear tolerance
  • Reduced plant height
  • Increased density
  • Tolerant to saline conditions
  • Low in thatch
  • Lower mowing heights with less scalping
  • Medium texture with medium green colour

It is recommended for use on golf courses (fairways & roughs), home lawns, sports fields, parks, playgrounds and for erosion control.

For new turf applications sow 10-15g/m2 (100-150kg/ha). For repairing existing turf sow at 2.5-5g/m 2 (25-50kg/ha). Sahara should be sown when soil temperatures are consistently above 18ºC. For best results, sow in full sun in well-drained soils and soil moisture must be maintained for at least 1-2 weeks after sowing through irrigation or natural rainfall. Under ideal conditions, germination may begin within 7-10 days.

Allow 10-21 days for full germination and full coverage may be attained in 4-6 weeks. More time may be needed for establishment if sowing early or late in the season. Mowing may begin when grass is 1/3rd taller than the desired mowing height. Sahara performs best at mowing heights of 13-38mm. For optimum performance fertilise with 2.5-5kg/m 2 (25- 50kg/ha) actual N per month during the growing season.
