Product Details

Nearly twenty-five years of testing and development have resulted in the release of TIFTUF™, the new standard in drought-tolerant bermudagrass. Selected for superior drought and wear tolerance, TIFTUF™ has been rigorously developed and tested since 1992 by a team of researchers led by Dr. Wayne Hanna and Dr. Brian Schwartz at the University of Georgia.

TIFTUF™ was bred as one of 27,700 experimental bermudagrass genotypes. In 1999, ninety of the most promising genotypes were planted under a rainout shelter and evaluated through 2001 under deficit irrigation. Under this drought stress, TIFTUF™ (tested as experimental name DT-1) maintained its quality and green color the longest.

The mechanism of TIFTUF’s™ drought tolerance may be reduced water use, particularly in heavier soils. During testing, soil moisture remained consistently higher in TIFTUF™ plots than in plots containing other bermudagrass varieties. In 2011, continuing drought study testing established that TIFTUF™ used 38% less water and retained 95% more green leaf tissue during drought stress when compared to Tifway.

Prior to its release, TIFTUF™ had been further tested in 19 drought-stress trials, 2 sports field wear tolerance trials, utilizing the Cady traffic simulator, and 4 irrigated, non-stress trials at The University of Georgia, The University of Florida, North Carolina State University, Oklahoma State University and Texas A&M University as part of the Federal Specialty Crop Research Initiative (SCRI) grant. It has now been determined that TIFTUF™ will become the University research standard by which all drought tolerance will be determined.

Light Requirements: TIFTUF™ Bermuda only requires 4-5 hours of sun.

Irrigation: Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, TIFTUF™ needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.

Wow! Best experience ever! Everything about this project was impeccable, from the initial consultation through the quotes through the actual install. I had ~6,000 ft2 of zoysia sod installed and the professionalism of the staff and crew really impressed me. The attention to detail and clear interest in assurance that I as the customer was happy both during and at completion of the project was evident. I would strongly recommend this supplier and will definitely be calling them back later to upgrade other areas of my yard.

The team at Atlanta Sod did a great job on my yard. They arrived on time and were incredible professional. I made some big changes during the implementation that required additional soil and they quickly procured the required resources and delivered on time. The Project Lead was courteous and very professional he communicated the process and kept me abreast of the project. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends.
