MILILANI, Hawaii – Hawaiian Turfgrass, the exclusive licensed producer of TifGrand Certified Bermudagrass in Hawaii, announced that the shade tolerant turfgrass developed at the turfgrass research program at the University of Georgia, is now available for harvest and sale from the company’s sod farm based in Mililani, O’ahu, Hawaii.

“I am excited to share Certified TifGrand with the islands of Hawaii. This grass was developed by one of the leading bermudagrass scientists in the world. It was researched and tested to ensure that it performs well in shady situations, stands up to wear and tear associated with sports, and provides a beautiful, lush lawn,” said Sean Aukanai'i Fong, manager of Hawaiian Turfgrass.

TifGrand Certified Bermudagrass is suitable for use on home lawns, sports fields and golf courses. TifGrand certified bermudagrass was scientifically developed to thrive in 60-70 percent continuous shade, according to the companty. This means TifGrand requires approximately five hours of direct sun.

The grass is also Certified by the State of Hawaii, meaning that it is inspected on the sod farm site to ensure homeowners, sports field managers, landscapers and golf course superintendents that the Certified TifGrand that they purchase from Hawaiian Turfgrass is a high quality, weed-free sod.
