Bahia in Florida Bahiagrass is adapted to climatic conditions right through Florida and may also be grown on upland, well-drained sands, in addition to the moist, poorly-drained flatwoods soils of peninsular Florida. In Florida, bahiagrass is used on more land area than any other single pasture species, covering an estimated 2.5 million acres. Most of this acreage is used for grazing, with some hay, sod, and seed harvested from pastures. Bahiagrass is a warm-season grass that produces more grazing in the summertime than winter. As a result of the longer growing season, forage growth is more evenly distributed right through the year in southern Florida than in northern Florida. In southern Florida, growth of bahiagrass pastures slows in October, and many pastures have very little forage after mid-December, until the grass starts growing again all the way through early March. In northern Florida, bahiagrass pastures are productive from April to November. On selected sites, the grazing season may also be extended by overseeding cool-season legumes and grasses on the bahiagrass pastures.
This Bahia variety settles into difficult, sandy soils where other options have no chance.
