Bermuda Grass, Cynodon Dactylon, is a perennial warm season grass grown on a large scale in the Imperial Valley. Bermuda is grown primarily for seed production used in commercial and residential turf applications. Bermuda Grass is very drought tolerant and when irrigated, produces high-quality straw. Due to the long growing season in the Imperial Valley, farmers can harvest straw multiple times. When irrigated with good farm management and growing practices, our farmers produce high quality straw for both domestic and international markets.
