Developed by the Oklahoma State University breeding program, NorthBridge™ Bermudagrass is a high quality, sterile triploid
adapted for use on sports fields, golf course fairways, collars, tee boxes and in home lawns. It has rated highly in the NTEP
(National Turfgrass Evaluation Program) trials for shear strength and traffic recovery. NorthBridge is quickand also offers outstanding cold hardiness, high traffic tolerance and exceptional visual quality. It is an excellent choice for use in the southern U.S. through the transition zone and the upper region of bermudagrass adaptation.

Genetic purity and preservation of the NorthBridge Bermudagrass variety is of the utmost importance. Only licensed turfgrass
producers are authorized to grow NorthBridge for sale. All NorthBridge Bermudagrass grown and distributed across the United States is certified by local state crop certification agencies that provide rigid standards and regulations for production,
harvesting, and handling, that when adhered to, ensure a genetically pure, high quality, “certified” product. Additionally, all

WATERING

  •  Prior to installation of Northbridge Bermudagrass, ensure irrigation systems are working properly and covering all areas to be planted
  • Water thoroughly upon installation ensuring that both the NorthBridge is wet and the soil is moist to a depth of 3”,
    which is approximately 1” of water per day. Do this for the first 2-3 weeks.
  •  In hot weather, water within a few hours of installation to mitigate severe damage or loss due to heat / dehydration
    stress
  •  Shaded areas and heavy soils require less water than full-sun areas and sandy soils
  •  When proper rooting is evident, alter irrigation program accordingly.
    •  Watering requirements are greatly dependent on soil type, season, geography and other factors
    •  As a general rule, NorthBridge should receive ¾-1” of water once a week from irrigation or rainfall
    • Encourage deep root growth by watering until the soil is moist to a depth of 3”, shallow watering encourages shallow roots.

MOWING

    • New installations are often uneven and care should be taken not to scalp high spots
    • Mow within 10 days of installation and bag clippings the first few mowings
    • Maintain NorthBridge at 0.5-2” (1” is optimal)
    • Heights above 2” will reduce quality
    • Rotary mowers are preferred for heights 1” or higher
    • Reel mowers are preferred for heights below 1”
    • Mow every 5-7 days during the active growing season. Mow every 10-14 days, or as needed, during cooler weather
    • Never cut more than 1/3 of the total length of the blade at any one mowing
    • If a scheduled mowing is missed and clippings clump on top of the NorthBridge, bag or vacuum clippings to reduce shade out.

FERTILIZATION

    • Until established, use a starter fertilizer that is low in Nitrogen and higher in Phosphorous and Potassium
    • After it is established, higher Nitrogen rates should only be applied in the spring, for injury recovery, or for planned ‘peaking’. Apply lower rates of N in summer and fall

TEMPERATURE TOLERANCE

When properly maintained,

    • Northbridge is both cold-hardy and drought tolerant

WEAR RESISTANCE

    • Northbridge has exellent wear tolerance

SHADE TOLERANCE

    • NorthBridge Bermuda has a good shade tolerance–it only needs about 6-8 hours of sunlight daily.

WEED, INSECT, AND DISEASE CONTROL

    • Proper mowing, irrigation and fertilization of NorthBridge will reduce weed problems. If a weed problem persists, is tolerant of many commonly used herbicides.
    • NorthBridge has shown resistance to most fungal problems.
    • Avoid stress from insects by performing insecticidal applications as needed, and as always read and follow label directions carefully.
