Hello nature lover.....!

Bahiagrass is a warm season grass.  Thus, it is native to more warmer, temperate climates.  Originating in the 25 - 30 degree latitude area of Southern Brazil & Paraguay, it does well at those same latitude areas in North America.  Below is a generalized map showing the transition zone for warm and cool season grasses.  Pensacola Bahiagrass can survive extended low temperatures even into the transition zone belt, while Argentine Bahiagrass requires a higher temperature to survive.

Bahiagrass

Bahiagrass was introduced into Florida around 1914, when an extension agent in Pensacola Florida noticed it growing on the banks near the docks.  Evidently the seeds had arrived in the stomachs of cattle and ships ballast shipped in from Southern Brazil and started growing in the similar climate and soils.  From that beginning the seeds were multiplied and new varieties were introduced until today Bahia covers millions of acres throughout the Southern USA.   Each year over Eight million pounds of Bahiagrass seed are sold, planting and improving extensive acreage's of pasture and lawns.

Pensacola Bahia

Adaptation: Warm season areas from the temperate climate into the tropics. Bahia will not tolerate severe freezes of extended low temps without winter-kill.  Tifton 9 and Pensacola are more cold hardy than Argentine in clay to sandy soils in the southern areas where temperatures average above 20 degrees. 

ARGENTINE BAHIA
Argentine is the least cold hardy of the Bahia not surviving without winter kill north of the Tifton, Georgia area (about 75 miles north of Florida / Georgia border).  Argentine does survive more northern areas near the coast where freezing temps are not severe.

PENSACOLA OR TIFTON 9 BAHIA
Pensacola and Tifton 9 have good winter survival up to and in parts of the transition zone area.

Bahiagrass.com - PASTURES

PASTURE Adaptations of Bahia grasses are from the tropical to the sub tropical and into the inland coastal areas of the United States from South Carolina to Texas. Bahia grasses are one of the main grasses grown in the pampas regions of South America and along the coastal areas of Argentina. Bahia's are adapted to a wide variety of soils from sandy to clay mixes of low fertility. Argentine Bahia is adapted to the wetter, hotter climates along the inner coastal areas of higher rainfall.

The other Bahias are more adapted to the dryer and cooler south where light freezes are normal. Bahia can be used for hay but it is not the easiest to cut due to the low growing quality of the grass. Best used in pastures and can be planted alongside legumes and inter-seeded with ryes if needed for cooler season forage. Used in full time pastures or rotational systems to provide additional forage. Protein level for Bahia is from 3-8.
