TifTuf – A New Choice

TifTuf - a new choice

Fantastic colour retention and spring green-up makes TifTuf the ideal turf variety to suit Australian conditions.

TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda is known as couch here in Australia but TifTuf is unlike any couch you have seen before. Scientifically engineered to handle the best and worst conditions.

This amazing grass greens up earlier in the spring and stays green later in autumn than other Bermuda grass varieties.

A key characteristic particularly important for this time of year is winter colour. Whilst TifTuf is a warm-season variety and will go into a certain level of dormancy throughout the winter months, it has shown to hold substantially more colour as the temperatures cool than other couch varieties. It also greens-up much faster than other varieties coming into spring. Combine this with its superior drought resistance and durability, and you truly have the ideal lawn for Australian conditions and, more importantly, the Southern Highlands and the Shoalhaven regions.

TifTuf produces greater amounts of gibberellic acid than all other Bermuda varieties.

Gibberellic acid is the element required to create the green in the photosynthesis process.  This means an increased level of gibberellic acid results in TifTuf having greater winter colour retention as well as the ability to have increased photosynthesis, meaning it has a greater ability to absorb sunlight. In simple terms, this means that it needs 50% less sunlight than all other Bermuda’s.

TifTuf Hybrid 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. TifTuf has been studied for over 20 years in the US, with results during comparison trials showing overwhelmingly positive results. TifTuf appears to have excellent cold tolerance in comparison to other Bermuda grass varieties. In American trials in 2013 and 2014, it recorded over 90% survivability at -21 degrees Celsius outperforming the previously superior varieties Tifway and Celebration™.
