Summary

Wrangler is 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 coldest 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 green-up, a medium textured leaf and stem, a 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.

How to Use & Apply

Wrangler and Stampede PLUS bermudagrass seed can be planted during spring and summer months after the soil temperature has reached about 65F. Spring plantings are usually best because of the generally higher rainfall and better growing conditions compared to summer. Summer plantings that can be irrigated are entirely feasible. The cutoff date for planting in the summer depends upon geographic location. As a general rule, the further north you plant the earlier the cutoff date. The Wrangler is a very cold tolerant bermudagrass but it has to have time to develop and establish prior to frostin the fall.

Applications

Forage & Grazing

Wrangler’ bermudagrass is an excellent source of high quality forage in both haying and grazing systems. ‘Wrangler’s superior stress tolerance package allows it to be a consistent forage producer in a wide geographic and climatic region.

Pasture & Range

Wrangler’ bermudagrass is an excellent source of high quality forage in both haying and grazing systems. ‘Wrangler’s superior stress tolerance package allows it to be a consistent forage producer in a wide geographic and climatic region.

Soil Stabilization & Erosion Control

Wrangler’ bermudagrass develops both stolons and rhizomes which provide excellent soil stabilizing characteristics. ‘Wrangler’ has been used extensively in waterways, pond dams, streambanks, and other conservation applications.

Roadside

Wrangler’ has also been used as a utility turf.  It has good density, dark green color, but coarser stems than ‘Arizona common’, therefore easier to mow with rotary-bladed mowers.  Long-term persistence and cold hardiness make it a low maintenance utility turf for many applications such as roadsides, right-of-ways, commercial lots, and embankments.
