Developed by turfgrass researchers at Oklahoma State University (known then as OCK 1131) and, through nationwide testing in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP), Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass demonstrated its resilience and excelled in key metrics compared to other premium Bermudagrasses.

Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass derives its name from the Native American word, Tahoma, which means “frozen water”. In multiple tests, Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass demonstrated its exceptional winter hardiness by testing up to 75% more cold-tolerant than other Bermudagrass varieties. With the additional characteristics of improved wear tolerance and drought resistance, Tahoma 31 Bermudagrass is ideal for sports turf, golf courses and high-quality lawns in the Mid-Atlantic and Transition Zones in the U.S.A.
