The Science Behind TifTuf
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 colour the longest.
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.

The release of the new Lawn Solutions Australia Turfgrass varieties Sir Grange and TifTuf for the Victorian and South Australian markets has changed from the original planned release date of Spring 2017. Due to the dynamic nature of farming, our experienced turf producers were not able to cultivate ground and plant on their desired date due to long periods of wet weather. This resulting that saleable stock will not be released to the general public until 2019
