Testimonial for Texas Tough + Brand Bermudagrass: 

"I planted 5 acres of Texas Tough + Brand Bermudagrass during April, 2011.  Last summer I cut the newly seeded pasture three times and square baled 2,200 (60# bales) with excellent quality.  I used no commercial fertilizer on this field, utilizing chicken litter only.  My hay production was sold to retail outlets and farmers / ranchers.  I have already purchased more seed and will be planting a lot more Texas Tough + Brand Bermudagrass in 2012!"    Joey Hand - Hickory, MS
