TifGrand Turf in South Carolina

About TifGrand

TifGrand® is the world’s first seed and pollen sterile (triploid hybrid) Bermuda scientifically developed to thrive in 60–70º continuous shade. A semi-dwarf Bermuda grass, TifGrand® is naturally darker green and produces thin blade and denser turf than other Tifdwarf and semi-dwarf varieties.

Released by University of Georgia turfgrass breeders and geneticists Dr. Wayne Hanna and Dr. Kris Braman, TifGrand bermudagrass is patented and licensed. Before TifGrand® was released, it was evaluated under the independent nationwide NTEP 2002 National Bermuda Test (as Tift No. 4). Over the course of five years, 23 trials in 19 states were conducted and TifGrand® (Tift No. 4) scored as well as or better than other entries.
