Australia’s dry summers and droughts can be brutal on lawns —and even more so on your water use and bill. TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda Grass was developed by the world’s leading turf scientist with this challenge in mind.

25 years of research and development

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.

The Sports Turf Research Institute

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.

Looking for a more drought tolerant or ‘water less’ grass

TifTuf is a grass that has been bred to stand up to drought conditions and save you water. With TifTuf becoming the new benchmark when it comes to measuring the drought tolerance of turf.

TifTuf can be established with a fraction of the water that most other varieties require. Part of this is due to its rapidly establishing root system that can see it take root in less than 7 days, which can be up to 75% quicker than other varieties.

High wear tolerance and self repair capacity

The name says it all – Tiftuf is tough! This variety has a very fine leaf blade with dense growth, making it ideal for a wide variety of applications. Its density enables it to handle high wear situations like backyards and sports fields whilst its fine blade ensures shade tolerance and a very soft leaf to walk on.

100% genetically pure

As TifTuf was selected from a large gene pool based on certain traits, maintaining the genetic purity is crucial. To ensure this, the University of Georgia has bred all of its foundation material (thousands of acres) from one plant!

Active Turf Supplies is fully accredited and inspected by Australia’s only turf accreditation program, AusGAP.
