Grass Seed

Centipede is known for its excellent heat tolerance making it one of the best grasses for the Southeast region. This extremely low maintenance grass is available as Gulf Kist seed, produced exclusively by Woerner Turf. Enhanced with Bio-Kote, Gulf Kist Centipede Seed is available raw and in bulk, and has a special coating that establishes a “microenvironment” for stimulating vigorous growth. This coating provides many benefits including:

  • Increasing stand and survival under harmful conditions
  • Controlling damping-off and downy mildew
  • Achieving better seed to soil contact to aid in germination
