Overseeding Bermuda with Rye Grass Problems

Overseeding Bermuda grass with winter rye can cause problems in the spring.  Not only is the rye grass very healthy when the new Bermuda grass wants to wake up, but it can also release chemicals that can inhibit the growth of the Bermuda lawn.  In this video Doc is overseeding the back small lawn with a perennial rye over the Zoysia grass.  This experiment will help show the impact.   

From the ARTICLE Doc talks about: 

Overseeding a permanent grass such as bermudagrass with perennial ryegrass complicates spring transition, because perennial ryegrass is usually growing optimally and its upright growth shades the base grass. Although competition between species greatly impacts transition, ryegrass allelopathy has been proposed as another contributing factor. Allelopathy, the suppression of growth of one plant species by another through the release of chemicals into the environment, has been implicated as a mechanism of interference between many plant species. Allelopathic effects of perennial ryegrass on bermudagrass have been suggested but not examined.
