Developed by the University of Georgia (at Tifton, GA), Tifton 419 is a proven Bermuda MS variety. It has a dark green color, very fine leaf texture, and can be mowed at heights lower than 1”. When properly maintained, Tifton 419 is one of the most beautiful grasses available in the mid-south. It is one of the most popular golf fairway grasses, and is also used extensively for sports fields and full-sun residential lawns.
Because of the popularity of Tifton 419 Bermuda, it is widely available at sod farms in the Mid-South. Many growers try to pass off “common” Bermuda, a coarse, weed-like variety, or contaminated grass as pure Tifton 419 Bermuda. This has somewhat tarnished the reputation of the variety. At Battle Sod Farm, all of our Tifton 419 production fields have been established from certified planting stock. This assures that when you buy Tifton 419 Bermuda MS from Battle Sod Farm, you can be sure that you are getting what you pay for. Through the Mississippi Crop Improvement Association, we can even provide certification documents to prove the highest standards of purity.
