BERMUDAGRASS, TIF  Tifgrass

Cynodon dactylon cultivars         (SIN-no-don DAC-ti-lon)

Warm season     Sun     Stolons @ 1015 bushels/1,000 sq. ft.  Mowing Height 1/23/4 inches

 

HABIT:              Hybrid forms of common Bermudagrass. Narrower leaf blade and finer overall 
                          texture. Tifdwarf is the finest-textured, Tifgreen 328 is slightly larger, and Tifway 419 is the
                          largest and is the best of the hybrids for residential use.

 

CULTURE:       Higher maintenance than common Bermudagrass, since weeds and                                                           imperfections are much more visible.

 

USES:              Refined lawns and putting greens. Also golf course tees and fairways.
                         These  grasses are sterile (no seeds) and must be planted solid or from stolons.


PROBLEMS:     Some insects and diseases but none serious. Weeds show up badly.


 

NOTES:            Too much work for home lawns. Native to laboratory.
