AbstractCoastal, midland, and common bermudagrasses and Pensacola and Wilmington bahiagrasses were established and grown in the Limestone Valley and upland province of Georgia at six rates of nitrogen (N) fertilization. Forage and weed yields reflected N fertilization rates. Bermudagrasses out-yielded bahiagrasses at high N levels, and weed production composed a significant part of the total harvested. Common and midland bermudagrass and Wilmington bahiagrass are significantly more winter hardy than are coastal bermuda or Pensacola bahia.
