It has been demonstrated that improved cultivars of seeded common bermudagrass can be dormant-seeded during the winter, providing an alternative approach to renovate damaged areas of turf. However, bermudagrass golf courses and athletic fields are often overseeded with a cool-season grass such as perennial ryegrass during the dormancy period and the overseeded grass may prevent or delay establishment of dormant-seeded bermudagrass. The objective of this study was to determine if dormant seeding into an overseeded turf could be an effective means of bermudagrass establishment.
