Tifway (419) Bermudagrass Variety Description
Tifway (419) was selected and cooperatively tested by the USDA, the Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station, and the U.S. and Southern Golf Associations. Found in a seed lot of African bermudagrasses from Johannesburg, South Africa, in the Spring of 1954, this chance hybrid between African and common bermudagrass will shed no pollen and set no seed. The dark-green, disease-resistant variety spreads quickly, and is more resistant to sod webworm. Tifway was released to growers of certified sprigs in 1960.
