Argentine Bahia lawn
Argentine Bahiagrass can make great low-maintenance lawns.

Argentine Bahiagrass

Argentine is a Bahia "selection" of Bahiagrass that originated from the country of Argentina in South America.  The variety was developed by University initially for its forage production qualities.  This vareity is also sometimes referred to as "Argentina" Bahia.

Argentine has wide broad leaves with a good darker green color, making it more suitable for Lawns in Florida and other Coastal Southern states.  It's susceptibility to cold, results in winter kill of stands planted North of approximately Tifton, Georgia.   It is used extensively for lawns, because of its attractive look and the fact that it produces less "objectionable" seed heads than other Bahias.  Best for use in full sun areas.

Argentine Bahia

Argentine is also used extensively in Florida and other coastal areas for pasture purposes.  It is popular for use in wetter areas, due to it's ability to stand more more than the Pensacola Bahia variety.  It produces tremendous forage under proper conditions.   Argentine's only drawbacks are Ergot seed (diseased seed) produced on seed heads and the attribute of the sod to form a dense "sod bound" turf, requiring renovation (each 3-5 year period) for maintaining high rates of forage production.

Bahiagrass.com - Germination of Argentine

For Argentine Pastures - Seeding rate should be 25-50 lbs per acre.....  Higher rates can result in faster establishment.  Most agronomists recommend at least 25-30 lbs acre.

Argentine can at times be a little difficult to establish.  It is more susceptible to soil and weather conditions than is Pensacola Bahia which affects the germination.  It also has few dormant seeds, so adverse conditions when planted can be a factor.  Water being the key factor, to initiate the germination and keep the plants alive until they grow big enough for their root systems to establish.  It normally germinates in 10-20 days with 14 days considered the normal germinating time under ideal conditions.  I have seen locations where Argentine seeds planted in March, were still just germinating in September - October.  The key is water, fertilize, keep your area planted mowed to reduce weed competition and be patient.

Argentine & Shade - Argentine Bahia has minimal shade tolerance.  Best choice for shade in warm season lawns is a St. Augustine Grass - Bahiagrass will slowly thin out under the drip line of shady trees and will generally not survive long term as the shade tolerance is limited.  Argentine tends to have slightly higher shade tolerance than Pensacola. In general it should be used for full sun areas. - Shade tolerance: http://www.lawngrasses.com/info/graphs.html#Shade .  Also read our site on shade issues - www.shadegrass.com

PASTURE USE: Argentine Bahia Grass originated from the country of Argentina and was brought to the U.S. in the 1940’s. This grass has a thinner blade and better forage for horses and cows as to palatability. The areas that best support Argentine are wetter soils, higher humidity, and soils of low fertility. This variety grows best in the more sub tropical areas of higher rainfall. Seeded easily and fast growing, forming a dense thick sod once it is established. Low fertility requirements and a long lived perennial grass. Only limited growth is possible where grass grows under the trees .  Bahiagrass is primarily a full sun grass.
