Laredo is a specially formulated blend of hulled, coated proprietary Bermudagrass seed for improved stand establishment. Laredo’s growth characteristics create a more versatile forage for high quality hay, grazing and silage.
Laredo can be planted in the spring or summer after any danger of frost is past and when the soil temperature is consistently above 65°. Planting in late summer or early fall can also be done as long as a minimum of 60 days of good growth occurs before a frost. General planting rates are 12-15 lbs. per acre at a maximum depth of 1/4 inch. White clover can also be seeded with Laredo to improve forage quality, extend the grazing season and supply part of the nitrogen required for optimum production. Please check regional recommendations for specific planting dates and seeding rates. With proper management and ideal growing conditions, Laredo will be ready to cut or graze 45-50 days after seeding.
Laredo should be cut for hay or silage when it reaches 16” in height and then every 4-6 weeks thereafter. The last cutting should be approximately 8 weeks before the first killing frost occurs. Laredo should be grazed when it reaches a height of 4 to 8 inches and continue to be grazed until it is 1 to 2 inches in height.
After Laredo becomes dormant in the fall, a number of annual grains, grasses and legumes can be overseeded for productive winter forage.
Laredo is widely adapted throughout the transition zone and the southern United States. Laredo is very heat and drought tolerant, grows well on light to heavy soils and can perform over a wide soil pH range.
