How to plant Paspalum grass in Uganda

The trick in establishing paspalum is to make sure that the location where it’s going to be put will receive full sun. 

To plant, clear up the ground meant for planting the grass and even rake it to remove weeds and rocks. 

Add clay soils for better establishment if the soil in your area tends to be dry and light.

Before spreading the planting materials water the ground thorough enough to have the ground moist enough. 

Then transplant grass by digging up large, stratified pieces of grass tops, roots, sprigs, stolons or rhizomes. 

Bury the clumps in well-tilled, moist soil maintaining the soil level from the previous growing site.
