Here are updates on our efforts to bring only the best turf varieties to market:
TifTuf, a patented new release from the Georgia Seed Commission and The Turfgrass Group, will be ready for sale in Southern California in the summer of 2018. TifTuf is one of the top performers from preliminary results released by the 2013 NTEP Bermuda trials.
This patented Sod Solutions cultivar continues to be popular for its dark green color, quick repair from wear, and drought tolerance. Celebration was the grass of choice for five 2014 World Cup and four 2016 Olympic soccer venues in Rio de Janeiro. Ask one of our Customer Service team or Sales Reps about it!
Elite Plus™ Fescue
Our most popular variety continues to be grown with the most water-conservative Fescue seed varieties available on the market.
Bermuda Turf Plots
In 2016, 100 promising Bermudagrass cultivars were selected from among hundreds of genetic crosses bred by Oklahoma State University. The chosen 100 were planted by A-G Sod Farms in cooperation with Sod Solutions and now have finished the second summer of testing. A “dry down” period to test drought resistance is planned for summer 2018. Results will be compared for winter color retention, genetic color, drought resistance and other desirable characteristics. A handful of the highest-scoring varieties will be replanted into larger plots for closer observation and to test harvest-ability and eventually for release to the commercial market.
St. Augustine is a favorite of homeowners who want the low water use of a Warm Season grass with the ability to mow with a rotary mower without scalping. After very limited supplies during 2017, we expect limited supplies in Southern California during early summer 2018. As plantings mature in the heat of summer, we expect the ability to meet all demands on this popular turf variety.
