Blend of Cowboy, Giant, Chilly Verde and Jacob Bermuda grass. This mixture was put together in 2002 to help improve the forage production of straight Giant Bermuda grass. Mohawk offers more cold tolerance. Mohawk and Cowboy are more aggressive than Giant in lateral growth. The protein content depends on the management of the stand but the blend does produce more leaf and less stems compared to straight Giant. It does well on many types of ground, but does very well on light soils. This blend is especially useful for areas that are continually grazed.
Once established is very drought, heat and salt tolerant with some cold tolerance due to Mohawk in the blend. Unlike other available forage Bermuda grasses Buckaroo is not coated which means you have a purity of 98% seed and not 50%.
Should be planted when soil temperatures are consistently above 60 F. Requires direct sunlight and thrives on fertilizer. Planting method determines seeding rate, while using a proper drill rates of 5 to 10 lbs. an acre are used, while broadcasting rates are increased up to 20 lbs. acre. Planting depth of 1/8 to ¼ inch is recommended.
