Grass Forage

Wrangler Bermuda

‘Wrangler’; an improved, seeded forage-type bermudagrass with superior cold tolerance,was developed by Johnston Seed Company using breeding lines licensed by Oklahoma State University.  ‘Wrangler’ is the most widely planted true cold tolerant seeded forage bermudagrass in the United States.  Released in 1999, ‘Wrangler’ has proven itself as one of the most cold hardy bermudagrasses available for pasture, hay, and conservation uses.  ‘Wrangler’ has survived near Kansas City, MO for more than 10 years without substantial winter kill.  It has excellent cold hardiness, drought tolerance, heat tolerance, disease resistance, and grazing resistance. ‘Wrangler’ has early spring greenup, a medium textured leaf and stem, density greater than the F1 hybrids but less than that of Arizona common,  and a fast rate of regrowth. The medium leaf and stem characteristics of ‘Wrangler’ provide the right amount of consistency in the hay to make good quality square bales with an exceptional leaf to stem ratio.

 

‘Wrangler’ is Plant Variety Protected (PVP No. 200000065) and any unauthorized reproduction such as seed production, sprig sales or sod sales are prohibited – U.S. Protected Variety – 1994 PVPA.
