2015 Commercial Sources of Buffalograss Seed, Sod and Plugs

About This Directory

This directory was created to aid in locating commercially available sources of buffalograss seed, plugs and sod in and around the central and southern Great Plains region. Although the information presented in this directory was current at publication time, cultivar availability is subject to change. Retail nursery operations not regularly stocking buffalograss products were not included in this directory. In addition to locating sources in this directory, consumers are encouraged to contact their local retail center to determine product availability.

 

Buffalograss sod, plug or seed producers or other business entities specializing in the production or sale of buffalograss who are not listed in this directory and who wish to be included in the next update should direct their request to: Dennis Martin, Oklahoma State University, 358 Agricultural Hall, Stillwater, OK 74078, phone:405.744.5419 or dennis.martin@okstate.edu.

 

How to Use This Directory

Step 1: In order to locate sources that carry buffalograss, one must first determine cultivar(s) or blend(s) name(s) to search for sources. Choose the cultivar or blend names (listed in alphabetical order) in the left hand column of Table 1. The cultivar type, whether originating from seed or from a vegetative source, is listed in the second column of Table 1. Vegetative cultivars are only available as sod or plugs. Some seeded cultivars may be available as sod, but rarely.

 

Step 2: Reference the enterprise name producing or distributing the product in the far right hand column of Table 1. Shown in parentheses following the enterprise name is the specific product form, either seed, sod or plugs. The enterprise location, designated by a two letter state code, is shown in the far right hand column. Note that some cultivars may no longer be commercially available and could not be found at this writing.

 

Step 3: After locating the name of a supplier, find the contact information for the supplier in Table 2 (listed in alphabetical order).

 

Step 4: Questions concerning current product availability, price, shipping, installation as well as other specific information should be directed to the commercial supplier. Information on cultivar performance, establishment and maintenance can be found in OSU Fact Sheets:

 

HLA6418: Selecting A Lawn Grass In Oklahoma,
HLA6419: Establishing A Lawn In Oklahoma and
HLA6420: Lawn Management In Oklahoma.
