Tifton 9 Bahia grass is an improved selection of Pensacola Bahia Grass.

Tifton 9 is a finer leaf Bahia, great for pastures and erosion control areas. Has a nice narrow (med-fine) green leaf. With a narrower blade than the Argentine Bahia variety. Tifton 9 requires minimum maintenance attention = less water less fertilizer less work! With a very well developed root system, Tifton 9 is great for soil erosion requirements and for drought tolerance.

The quality best that is demonstrated in this bahia grass variety is the possibility to produce up to 40% more forage than the others under the right conditions with rain and fertilization. Drought tolerant, and will grow further north than the Pensacola makes this a very desirable pasturage grass. With low fertility requirements, and the ability to be grown on sandy to clay soils of low fertility it helps to extend the range of the bahia varieties. This bahia grass has a better palatability with a finer texture than the Argentine or Pensacola bahia grass varieties. The area of adaptation is across the inner coastal south as far Miami, Florida and North across the lower transition zone.

Tifton 9 Bahia - Pastures

Establish A Tifton 9 Pasture

Tifton 9 pastures have the highest protein of the three primary Bahia varieties sold.  This hardy grower can produce 25-40% more in pasture forage than other Bahia's under the best of conditions. With longer blades and faster growth from seedlings weed control is a snap. The best possible planting of Tifton will be on ground not previously planted by another variety of Bahia. This keeps the Tifton 9 from crossbreeding with inferior Bahias.

Planting two seasonal crops back to back with legumes, millets, ryegrasses, etc. will help to keep old stands from growing back and prepare your site for seeding with the improved Tifton 9. Soil testing will tell you how much lime and fertilizer will be needed. If you have used legumes then the fertility of the soil will already be improved. It is best to plant on a weed free and prepared seed bed.

Tifton 9 is sold in 40 LB Bags only.
