TifTuf Bermuda Grass is a turf variety that has been developed in the United States and was selected for its drought tolerance. Further extensive independent trails and assessments were then conducted on TifTuf in Australian conditions. TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda was a clear stand out performer in these trials.

TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda is the first and only grass to be awarded the Smart Approved Water Mark for these exceptional water saving benefits that it was bred for. TifTuf can be established with a fraction of the water that most other varieties require. Part of this is due to its rapidly establishing root system that can see it take root in less than 7 days, which can be up to 75% quicker than other varieties.
