For the Australian lawn and turf industry, 1996 marked a significant year because Sir Walter DNA Certified Buffalo Turf was discovered at that time.
New South Wales turf farmer Brent Redman noticed a variation in a patch of Buffalo grass he was growing. The variant of the Buffalo grass retained a greener colour in the winter months and had a healthier root system.
Following the discovery, propagation of the variant began and the wheels of the development of a new grass were set in motion.
Fast forward to 2022, over one million square metres of Sir Walter have been produced and sold, making it the largest-selling turf variety and the most successful turfgrass in Australia.
There are good reasons for the success of Sir Walter. It is a pure variety and has high standards that need to be met by its growers that sell and market it as DNA Certified Sir Walter. This is done to protect purity through generations of its production.
Buying DNA Certified Sir Walter assures buyers that they are receiving the genuine product and not one of the “me to”, look-alike or “bred from Sir Walter” products that some growers claim to have and all of which are not the true DNA Certified Sir Walter. If it’s not DNA Certified, it’s not the real thing.
