Superior drought tolerance, speedy recovery & toughness, TIFTUF is the smart grass
Australia's dry summers and droughts can be brutal on lawns - and even more so on your water use and bill. TIFTUF Bermuda Grass was developed by the worlds leading turf scientist with this challenge in mind. TIFTUF Bermuda has been formally recognised with the Smart Approved WaterMark for the following states and territories in Australia - QLD, NSW, VIC, TAS and SA.
After many years of extensive independent testing and research, TIFTUF Bermuda is the first and only turf grass to receive this for drought tolerance in Australia or anywhere in the world.
25 years of research and development
TifTuf Bermuda is the product of almost 25 years of research and development from one of the world’s leading turf grass breeders, the University of Georgia. TifTuf has been hand selected out of almost 30,000 different Bermuda varieties, showing superior qualities in drought tolerance, shade tolerance, wear tolerance and winter colour whilst at the same time maintaining excellent turf quality.
The Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) conducts world leading testing and research for developing innovative techniques and products to improve turfgrass and sports surfaces.
STRI recently conducted a trial evaluating the “Performance of bermuda grass cultivars under different shade, irrigation and wear treatments”. TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda was a clear stand out performer in this trial.
