Tifway 419
Combining toughness with beauty, Tifway 419 has been the most popular sports turf for the last 40 years. Its dense, rapidly spreading growth habit means quick recovery from injury, making it one of the most durable hybrid Bermudas. Tifway 419 tolerates close mowing and is highly disease resistant. For use on fairways, roughs, sports fields, and commercial and residential lawns.
Tifway is a hybrid bermudagrass cross of Cynodon dactylon x C. transvaalensis germplasma. It is characterized as having a dark green color with medium fine textured leaves. Tifway hybrid bermudagrass is dense with a medium to low growth habit. This variety is a vigorous grower and thus establishes quickly at planting.
The 2001 NTEP trial conducted in Griffin, GA showed that Tifway 419 was shown to have better quality ratings than Tifsport.
Research Results Ranks #1 In the Following Categories In NTEP & University Testing -
Cold Tolerance: Winter Survivability: Low Water Use: Exceptional Turf Quality: Early Spring Green-Up: Shade Tolerance: Traffic Tolerance
#1 for Low Water Use In tests that measured evapotranspiration rates (mm d-1) under non-limiting soil moisture conditions in Oklahoma (Amgain et al., 2018), Tahoma 31 fared best, while TifTuf used the most water. Overall, Tahoma 31 used 18% less water than TifTuf.
#1 in Cold Tolerance: Winter Survivability The winter of 2013 - 2014 swept a polar vortex into the Midwest that created record low temperatures. Dr. Cale Bigelow, a professor of CULTIVAR turf science and ecology at Purdue University, located in West Lafayette, Indiana, participated in the NTEP study. In a December 2019 article in Golf Course Management magazine, Dr. Bigelow was quoted as saying only 9 of 42 bermudagrasses tested survived with at least 50% ground cover by spring. Some 14 of the grasses completely died. By the end of the NTEP study, Tahoma 31 was rated by far with the greatest winter survivability in Indiana at only 4% winter kill.

Cultural Practices
Suggested mowing height 1/2"- 1 1/2"
20-25 lbs. N per acre or 1/2 1lb N per 1,000 square feet every four weeks depending on growing season once established.
Maintain high levels of K (up to 1N:2K) throughout the year, with special emphasis during late summer and fall.
Gradually raise mowing height in the fall as night-time temperatures are approaching the low 50F.
State Certification
Certification is the only method of assuring the consumer is receiving the variety they purchased.
TifGrand can only be produced and sold as a Certified turfgrass variety, unlike many other varieties.
