Developed by Texas A&M
TamStar spent more than a decade in the research stages at Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Dallas. The project to develop a drought, shade and cold tolerant grass was spearheaded by Dr. Ambika Chandra, Dr. Anthony D. Genovesi and Dr. Milt Engelke. Using state-of-the-art turfgrass breeding techniques, this team of world-renown researchers created a grass that requires little watering through drought summers, that also greens up after a being covered in ice or snow during the winter.
