TifTuf™ Certified Bermudagrass is not only exceptionally drought tolerant, but also it provides superior wear and traffic tolerance, excellent cold tolerance, faster spring green-up and excellent fall color retention.
Adding yet another stellar addition to its lineup of outstanding turfgrass cultivars for turf managers and property owners seeking top-quality sod, Buy Sod, Inc., will begin offering TifTuf™ Certified Bermudagrass in spring 2017. The newest “Tif” release from the world-renowned University of Georgia bermudagrass breeding program, TifTuf™ provides unbeatable drought tolerance — it uses 38% less water than industry standard, Tifway, and it is significantly more drought tolerant than all other bermudagrasses.
“We so strongly believe in the sustainability characteristics of TifTuf™ bermudagrass that we have planted it across our entire production footprint and are reducing or eliminating the production of other varieties that require more water,” says Charles Harris, Buy Sod co-owner with David McCart and Clark Wooten. “In addition to its incredible drought tolerance, TifTuf™ is more aggressive than Tifway and provides superior wear and traffic tolerance, excellent cold tolerance, faster spring green-up and excellent fall color retention.”
TifTuf™ is licensed only to certified sod producers by The Turfgrass Group, based in Monroe, Georgia. Buy Sod, with its stringent growing protocols to ensure genetic purity, is one of the first sod growers to be licensed to produce TifTuf™.
“TifTuf™ will pay for itself in water savings, but more importantly it will help create sustainable landscapes, golf courses and athletic fields in the future,” says Harris. “We think it will soon become the ultimate must-have grass for municipalities that are concerned about water use. This is a breakthrough product for our industry.”
