I'd say that too since T85 is 3-4 times the money.BC":1fc99afb said:Coastal bermuda was develped in Georgia at the Tifton Experiement Station. Tifton 85 was also develped there by the same gentlemen - Dr. Glen Burton. I heard Dr. Burton speak at a field day in Texas. He said "I fell Tifton 85 is better than Coastal and I should know since I bred both of them". T-85 is better for grazing purposes as it is higher in digestibility. It appears to have better drought tolerance here in East Texas than Coastal. The only thing seeded varieties have to offer is they are a little easier to plant.
