The Types of Common Bermuda Grass Seed

  • Hulled seed: Part of the protective seed coat is mechanically removed so as to speed up germination percentages. This makes it more likely for the seed to all germinate at near the same time. Hulled seeds are planted more than any other kind because people generally want fast germination. Only a few of the improved bermuda grass varieties may be purchased hulled.
  • Un-Hulled seed: Un-hulled seed still have the seed coats attached. Some seed may germinate early and others will lie dormant until conditions are more favorable for germination, sometimes even months later. Most improved Bermuda grasses are un-hulled.
  • Coated seed: Coated seed have been coated with a coating material (clay based) and a fungicide to increase successful germination by providing control of seed and soil borne pathogens, also is distasteful to birds, so they won't eat they seeds before they can germinate.
  • Raw seed: Raw seed are simply seeds that have not been coated. The advantage of raw seeds is you get more actual seed per lb. of weight. The disadvantage is usually that no fungicides are applied leaving the seed  and birds will eat these seeds.
  • Hulled & Un-hulled Blend - This 50-50 Blend takes advantage of germination characteristics of both hulled and un-hulled seeds.
