“Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is unique because it has a dense canopy that wears well under increased play,” said Adcock. “That canopy prevents the wear problem other cold tolerant grasses experience and helps insulate and protect the grass during the winter. It also has an exceptional ability to tolerate more hours below freezing which together make it far superior to anything I’ve seen.”
Tahoma 31 bermudagrass displayed its winter survivability during NTEP trials in West Lafayette, IN. When other bermudagrasses had almost 100% winterkill, Tahoma 31 had only 4%. Tahoma 31’s early spring green-up reflects its winter hardiness. It also comes out of dormancy earlier and turns green faster than other bermudagrasses tested.
Tahoma 31 is highly adaptable to different soils, including soils with high salt concentrations and areas where drought and water use are an issue. For sports fields, golf courses and lawns in regions that experience harsh winter conditions, this highly dense, fine textured dark green grass outperforms bermudagrasses on the market.
