Seeding Bermuda With Universal Aeravator

I will be seeding a football field in KY with Riviera Bermudagrass seed in a few weeks. It has an decent stand of unknown bermuda. I have never seeded bermuda with my Universal Aeravator before but it is awesome for seeding fescue and rye.

I'm asuming I need to discharge the seed behind the tines instead of in front? I'm not sure about depth of the tines? Any advice would be great help.

I too have an aerovator and am looking to use it seed Riviera bermuda seed. Have you seeded your field yet? If so, what settings to you have your seed box set on? Bermuda seed is so small I'm not sure if it will even work in the aerovator. Any help would be appreciated.

they decided not to seed.
The Seedavator has calibration info for Bermuda, so it can be used for bermuda seed.

You're right. "Pyramid" bermuda seed settings are listed on my calibration sheet! I'll test the recommended settings at my shop before heading to the field. That Riviera seed is expensive so I want to get it right. Thanks
