USGA Summary Points:Bermudagrass was difficult to control chemically and grew back from glyphosate treatments 3 to 4 weeks after buffalograss seeding. Bermudagrass germination was minimal regardless of treatment and competition from bermudagrass regrowth became evident one month after seeding. Differences in buffalograss establishment did not exist between the two seeding rates regardless of seedbed preparation treatment. Verticutting, aeration, and topdressing treatments increased buffalograss cover by 10% 2 months after seeding compared to no seedbed preparation. Percent buffalograss cover never exceeded 15% regardless of seedbed preparation or seeding rate treatments at the conclusion of the trial (October 15, 2008). Due to low buffalograss conversation, turfgrass quality ratings were not taken.
