Title:
Germination of Lehman Lovegrass and Black Grama Under Controlled Environment Conditions

Turfgrass and Ornamentals Research Summary
Abstract:
Mechanical scarification greatly improved the germination of Lehmann Lovegrass seed. Depending on the type and duration of scarification, seed gemzination can be improved from 10 %-12% germination (untreated seed) to over 90% (60-second scarification in a commercial seed scarifier). Black grama is sensitive to both dehulling and dehulling followed by scarification. Unhulled black grama seed should be used for field plantings.
