Improved Hybrid Bermuda
Tifway 419 is an improved hybrid bermuda developed from the famed Tifton, Georgia turf breeding program. Tifway forms a fine textured, dense hybrid bermuda turf that excels in high traffic areas or under athletic field conditions. It is more aggressive than Tifgreen and holds its color longer going into the winter months. Tifway performs at its best in full sun and a mowing height of 1/2 - 3/4 inches. When fully established, it has excellent drought and heat tolerance and will recover quickly from abuse or neglect.
Requirements, Irrigation & Characteristics
Bermuda Tif - 419 requires full sun of atleast 6-12 hours per day.
Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Bermuda Tif - 419 needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.
