Growing A New Crop Of Buffalo Grass
Buffalo grass is notoriously bad at propagating from seed, so bad in fact - that turf farms can neither grow a crop of Buffalo grass from seed, nor harvest the Buffalo seed for sale to homeowners.
Which leaves us with the question about how the Buffalo turf farms actually grow each new crop of Buffalo sod which will then later go on sale to homeowners.
Buffalo Grass Harvesting
So how is Buffalo grass sowed and harvested at the turf farm?
Well the answer is rather a simple one.
When the harvesting machine is cutting out rolls of new Buffalo sod from the ground at the turf farm, the machine will simply leave narrow strips of Buffalo grass in-between where the rolls of sod are being cut from.
Look at the pictures to see the narrow strips left in place after harvesting the turf.
Once harvesting is completed, these narrow strips of Buffalo turf are left in place and will eventually re-grow and cover the empty areas once more.
When the ground is once again covered with a dense, even sward of new Buffalo grass, it's time to harvest the new crop once again.
