Mise à jour de l'agriculture
Thought I'd give you a quick update on my recent agri-endeavors. Good news is the bermuda seems to be taking off. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a good stand, but it's a stand. There's some bare patches that I can only attest to my missing some spots with the spreader. It definitely could have been worse. It easily could have been better, too.
I used 3 lbs per acre of seed per the specs of my contract. The recommended amount from the seed dealer was 9lbs per acre. I should have gone with 9 but as the saying goes, po' boys got po' boy ways. The good news is it's Giant Bermuda and not a hybrid. It will head out and make it's own seed. That plus the normal root spread should quickly expand the coverage over a year or two.
