TifGrand® Bermuda is the first bermuda to exhibit significant shade resistance compared to other bermudagrasses. TifGrand® has superior quality in full sun and partially shaded areas. TifGrand® is darker green than other bermuda varieties such as Tifway and TifTuf™. It requires less nitrogen fertilizer to maintain a dark green color and can be mowed as low as ½”. TifGrand® was evaluated for nine years in research studies before its release in 2010.
