    We are in Southern California and will be overseeding our Bermuda in November when the kids go on break. I wonder if anyone knows any of these blends and what would give us the best result for this application. Or any others.

    Sorry, I'm a cool season guy with no experience overseeing Bermuda. I recognize a couple of the varieties mentioned in a couple of the blends. It looks as if every one of them scored highly in the 3 columns you should probably care most about. I note that only one scored well in self-repairing. If that is important to your field and program (probably not if you are counting on it to die when Bermuda breaks dormancy), you might consider adding 2-3 lbs per thousand square feet of the one I linked below. I've used it on football fields and it works. It's a good choice here for quick germination because as temperatures drop throughout high school football season not much KBG is going to get established to any useful extent seeded after mid-September, but they could be playing on it until the end of October. Good luck with your project.

    Thank you for your post. That RPR looks intriguing. I wonder if it's used for overseeding to any extent. I imagine it would compete with the Bermuda for creeping rights at some point.
