Feeding Value is High - High winter growth; rapid spring growth pre-flowering early summer
Ability to spread
Will spread from seed; seed set will occur if ungrazed/not cut and this will be associated with a substantial trade-off in nutritive value.

Weed potential
Low unless allowed to set seed

Major pests
Red and black-headed cockchafer, black field cricket, white-fringed weevil, African black beetle, corbies, underground grass caterpillar.

Major diseases Rust

Herbicide susceptibility Glyphosate 

Over Sowing Existing Warm-Season Lawns

Sowing Time The best time for over-sowing lawns composed of warm-season grasses is between February and July, if possible when rain is forecast.

Sowing rate

For best results sowing rates of between 1 to 2 kg per 100 m. Bag size is 25 kg.


Mow the lawn as low as you can (scalping). This allows better seed to soil contact which is important in promoting faster germination of the sown seed.

A more professional approach is to use core aeration, or dethatching machinery. Both will remove lawn thatch and slightly disturb the soil giving improved seed to soil contact.

In some cases, due to compaction or shallow tree roots popping up in the lawn the topsoil layer may be too thin, in this case Spread about 50 ml of screened topsoil over the area, and rake it in.

Over Sowing

A fertiliser spreader would be handy ow to make the job easier, otherwise the old fashion way of hand broadcasting is what you will do.

For best results, go over the area broadcasting, from side to side, in a north to south direction then turn and broadcast in an east to west direction.

Do this two or three times. This will ensure an even coverage of the seed.

If you have access to a light roller, roll the sown area.


Nothing beats steady rainfall but if it’s light on, then the grass seeds must be watered properly, in order to germinate.

Use a fine spray, as you don’t want to create a flood!

The soil should be kept evenly moist, with daily watering (depending on the weather), for several weeks.

Best time to water in of an evening.


For best results a good NPK fertiliser should be applied at sowing. CK88 or GH303 which has high nitrogen content are commonly used.

Apply at 1 to 2 kg per 100 m².

Grasses generally are more efficient at photosynthesis than trees. The more grass you grow the more carbon dioxide is converted to oxygen and sequestered into soil organic matter.
