Rated # 1
Low Water Use
Comparing evapotranspiration rates, Tahoma 31 fared best while TifTuf used the most water. Overall, Tahoma 31 used 18% less water than TifTuf.
By the end of the NTEP study, Tahoma 31 was rated by far with the greatest winter survivability in the three year study period, 2014 - 2017.
Early Spring Green-up
In NTEP tests, Tahoma 31 ranked at the top spot for early spring green-up among all vegetative bermudagrass cultivars tested in 16 states.
Turf quality ratings in NTEP tests at 17 locations over 5 years show Tahoma 31’s exceptional turf quality among bermudagrasses.
Turfgrass quality under traffic in NTEP National Bermudagrass Test. Tahoma 31 exhibits excellent traffic tolerance compared to all other bermudagrass cultivars.
In the opinion of the researchers, Tahoma 31 is a great choice (among bermudagrasses) for partial shaded locations in the transition zone of the US.
