Grain in Tifway II bermuda

View Larger

This composite image illustrates the appearance of "grain" in hybrid bermudagrass. The dark object is the handle of a knife stuck into the turf. The image on the left and right were taken from opposite directions pointing toward the knife. The bottom pair of images provide a yellow outline of the same area illustrating the difference in contrast depending upon the direction of the grain relative to the angle of the sun. The Koro Field Topmaker fraise mower can help alleviate this problem.
