Hay sitting in a field

Bermudagrass is an important forage crop throughout Alabama. While seeded varieties of bermudagrass are available, most commonly used pasture and hay varieties must be established using spriggs. The following is a current listing of bermudagrass spriggers that service either portions or all of Alabama. This list is not all inclusive, and other spriggers may be available in your area. If your operation sells bermudagrass spriggers and you would like to be included on this list, contact Leanne Dillard at alabamaforages@aces.edu.

Prior to establishment, review the Alabama Extension publication Bermudagrass in Alabama for more more information on variety selection, site preparation, fertility, and forage management. Contact your county Extension office with any further questions.
