Bahiagrass Seed for Pastures
You deserve a better bahiagrass
Thanks to advanced science and the outstanding University of Florida breeding program, your growing season is now longer than ever. UF-Riata is a purebred diploid bahiagrass that features improved cold tolerance and a growing season that extends well into the spring and fall months, when days are shorter and temperatures are lower. It also exhibits excellent stand establishment and seedling vigor.
The highest yielding bahiagrass on the market, UF-Riata can be planted farther North than other varieties. This variey is bred to start early in the Spring and go late into the Fall. Because it grows from frost to frost, it gives superior yields in the summer months compared to other varieties. UF-Riata is not as photosensitive to short daylight periods as other varieties — so when the days are short in the Spring and Fall, UF-Riata will still actively grow. This gives you higher yields for a longer period of time and extra grazing or hay cuttings throughout the year.
