Bermudagrass for athletic fields
This publication has been prepared for managers of football and soccer fields who are frustrated by trying to grow cool-season grasses where irrigation is limited or where fields receive heavy use during optimal seeding times of the year. Another situation many groundskeepers face is a field that receives heavy use through the summer with no opportunity to recover before the the fall season begins. If you have found yourself in these situations, you may want to consider bermudagrass as a means of establishing a reasonable stand of grass to maintain good playability and safety.
