The Story of how TifTuf came to Perth

08 Dec 2017

It is a testament to the amazing properties of this new variety of turf that it survived its 8 day journey, let alone arrived looking as fresh as if it had been harvested the day before!

The TifTuf was harvested on Monday the 27th of November from Daleys Turf in Queensland. Daleys Turf are the nursery for new grass varieties being released by Lawn Solutions Australia into the Australian market. The TifTuf was then washed and refrigerated overnight. The next day it was unpacked and laid out, sprayed with a fungicide and insecticide while a bio-security officer was present to sign-off giving the ok to transport to WA.  Then all pallets were loaded into an refrigerated truck.

The journey across Australia even included a two day lay over in Darwin before finally arriving in Perth on the 7th of December.

The grass was picked up by the boys from Lawn Doctor Turf Farm in the morning and taken to the Gingin farm, where it was shredded up and planted straight into the ground. The job finally finishing at sunset when the boys enjoyed a cold beer for a job well done!

Perhaps it should have been a bottle of champagne broken over the pivot, but perhaps they will save that for the first grass roll which is expected to be harversted, fingers crossed, in March.

What an awesome journey TifTuf has made. From Georgia America to Queensland to WA. Well done to Lawn Solutions Australia and Daley’s Turf for growing this beautiful, healthy grass and co coordinating the massive project, and well done to the boys at Lawn Doctor Turf Farms for getting it into the ground.

What an opportunity for Perth and an amazing asset in helping to keep our dry state green
