An interview with TifTuf Bermuda:


Where did TifTuf come from?

TifTuf is the product of nearly 25 years of research and development from one of the world's leading turf grass breeders, the University of Georgia in conjunction with Lawn Solutions Australia.

 

Why was TifTuf developed? 
Almost 30,000 different Bermuda varieties were being created with the search for superior qualities for our Aussie climate. TifTuf stood out to show exceptional qualities in drought, shade, and wear tolerance, and for keeping its colour for longer in the cooler months.

 

Why did we start growing TifTuf here in Australia? 
TifTuf was chosen especially for the Australian climate. We began growing TifTuf in 2017 so that we would have a local supply for our Aussie landscape.
