The Story of IronCutter
A unique bermudagrass like IronCutter should have a great backstory. An elite, tough variety selection isolated off the cold plains of Enid, Oklahoma by Dr. Charles Taliaferro, IronCutter evokes hardy, resilient ideals, and it also makes up the very meaning of his family’s name.
The anglicized Taliaferro comes from the Italian family name Tagliaferro, literally translated as “IronCutter”.
So why did we name our vegetative variety after Dr. Taliaferro? We did it as a sign of respect for all of his vast accomplishments in plant breeding. An homage. He’s one of our most important figures in plant breeding.
