Retail / Wholesale Seeds - PASPALUM NOTATUM - BAHIA grass (COATED) - 1KG
Aka Bahia grass, Paraguay paspalum.
Used as permanent forage for intensively grazed pastures and as a stable drought-resistant, ground cover/soil binder, particularly in traffic and shaded areas. Suitable for agroforestry. Recommended more for beef than for milk production. If well fertilized and vigorous it can make useful hay.
P. notatum is commonly found on sandy or light textured soils over its native and naturalised range, and sometimes extends onto clays. While preferring fertile soils, it can maintain dense stands on infertile soils. It grows on soils with pH of 5.5-6.5. Responds well to nitrogen fertilizer.
Rainfall in its native habitat mostly ranges from 700-1,500 mm year. It is generally sown in areas with a well-distributed Annual&description=true">Annual rainfall from about 900-1,500 mm, but can be used at up to 2,500 mm. It is very drought tolerant by virtue of its deep root system, and is fairly tolerant of flooding, surviving over 30 days of inundation.
Optimum temperature for germination is 30-35°C, for growth 25-30°C, and for tillering, 20-25°C. Little growth occurs in the cooler months. Tops are burnt off by frost, and are killed when temperatures fall below -10° to -12°C.
Bahia grass is moderately tolerant of reduced light.

BulkSeed.co.za is our agricultural seed trading division, we specialize in wholesale seed supplies for the agricultural / farming sector in Southern Africa. We supply agricultural seeds to many of our neighbouring countries like Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya, Angola, Mozambique, Swaziland and Lesotho, where wholesale agricultural seeds for animal grazing / forage / fodder / haymaking / green manure / cover crops are not as readily available!
We buy seeds in bulk and then sell it per kilogram to help save you money!
Most wholesale seed suppliers sell their seeds in full 25kg bags, thus making it hard for retail seed customers to buy, the average home / residential customer would only need just a couple of kilograms of lawn seeds to establish their lawn, so would normally be subject to the ridiculous mark-ups that are associated with retail seeds for an urban market.
So, we decided to change all of that, and offer bulk agricultural seeds for a fraction of the normal retail seed prices.
Okay, maybe the packaging is not as flashy, but when you're paying less than half the price for your lawn / turf seeds, I'm sure nobody would be complaining about the packaging!
