BERMUDAGRASS, TIF Tifgrass


 

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

Warm season Sun Stolons @ 10–15 bushels/1,000 sq. ft. Mowing Height 1/2–3/4 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.
