What Makes Tahoma 31 Truly Great
Developed by top turfgrass researchers at Oklahoma State University (as OKC 1131) and, through nationwide testing in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP), Tahoma 31 bermudagrass demonstrated its resilience and excelled in key metrics compared to other bermudagrasses including Tifway, TifTuf and Latitude 36.
Tahoma 31 bermudagrass derives its name from the Native American word, Tahoma, which means frozen water.In test after test, Tahoma 31 bermudagrass shows its exceptional winter hardiness, tested up to 75% more cold tolerant than other bermudagrass varieties. With the additional characteristics of both improved wear tolerance and drought resistance, Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is ideal for sports turf, golf courses and high-quality lawns in the Mid-Atlantic & Transition Zone.
What Our Customer’s Say
“The difference is Tahoma 31 is surviving the winters,” says Dan Robinson, golf course superintendent at Oaks Country Club in Tulsa. Oaks Country Club has had Tahoma 31 in the collars of all 18 greens since the spring of 2016. For two winters prior, the collars were grassed with another bermudagrass and “failed,” Robinson says. “We’ve
had it in a golf course environment for two years and in those two years we’ve lost less than a pallet of it.
The interesting thing is how unbelievably cold and dry last winter was and Tahoma 31 survived. OSU struck on something in cold tolerance”
