TifTuf Bermuda Turf Recognised for its Water Conservation
Each year, the Water Conservation Committee recognises a product that can reduce water usage. This year, it was Dr Brian Schwartz who has received the 2021 Leadership and Water Conservation award for his development of the water-savvy TifTuf Hybrid Bermuda grass.
TifTuf Bermuda turfgrass is the first of its kind, reducing water use by 38% over other popular turfgrass varieties. This makes it a particularly good choice for both Australian and American homes and businesses.
Developed by Dr Brian Schwartz at the University of Georgia, TifTuf Bermuda grass doesn’t just require a low water consumption, it also has superior qualities such as:
- Excellent sun & drought tolerance
- High wear & tear resistance
- Low maintenance requirement
- Good winter colour & shade tolerance
- Rich green colour & dense growth
Water conservation is becoming increasingly more important with Earth’s growing population rates as well as global warming. While 71% of the Earth is covered in water, only 0.5% of the water on Earth is available drinking water.
Doing what we can as individuals to conserve water is important as:
- It minimises the effects of drought and water shortages
- It guards against rising costs and political conflict due to shortages
- It helps to conserve our environment
- It safeguards water for the future
- It builds safe and beautiful communities
As Australians, we aren’t unfamiliar with water conservation. Water restrictions during summer and droughts is something that we all grew up with. By using drought-resistant and water–conserving lawn varieties, we’re able to enjoy the best of both worlds; maintaining a lush green lawn while following sustainable water practices.
