STRENGTH + SUSTAINABILITY
After nearly 25 years of testing and development, the world-renowned University of Georgia turfgrass breeding program and the USDA Agricultural Research Service have jointly released TIFTUF™. With additional field testing and comparative evaluation conducted by Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, NC State and the University of Florida, there has never been another bermudagrass released from this program with more data to support its agronomic qualities.
TIFTUF™ was selected for its superior drought and wear tolerance while consistently maintaining excellent turf quality. The Federal Specialty Crop Research Initiative has identified TIFTUF™ as the most drought tolerant bermudagrass, becoming the new standard for all future University drought tolerance testing. Further testing has shown that TIFTUF™ uses 38% less water than Tifway while maintaining better turf quality. Fine textured and dense, TIFTUF™ greens up early and maintains its color well into the fall.

The Turfgrass Group operates a limited licensing program for all of our proprietary varieties, thus the number of available TIFTUF™ production licenses is limited in each state and by geography within the individual states. Our goal is a network of producers committed to marketing premium quality turfgrasses with superior genetics and achieving market coverage with great opportunities for their businesses.
Many states and regions where TIFTUF™ is adapted are closed for licensing. But opportunities remain in several states and regions. We will be happy to provide details on TIFTUF™ and our program if you are in one of these open areas.
Once licensed by The Turfgrass Group, you become a member of a trusted network of progressive farmers committed to quality through next generation genetics and environmental resource management.See the Science Behind TifTuf
