Shiloh Farms is a major producer of grass seed located
in Springfield, GA, near historic Savannah. It has
been a family-owned business for over three decades and
currently has two generations working on the farm.
For most of its existence, the company has been
producing, cleaning and processing certified seed.
In the late 1990s, Shiloh Farms began producing
certified Tifton 9 bahia grass seed. Since then,
they have become the largest producer of certified grass
bahia seed in the Southeast, known for their quality and
In 2005, the Georgia Seed Development Commission
chose Shiloh Farms to produce the first large-scale
TifQuik foundation seed plot in Georgia. Because
of Shiloh Farms' location and sandy soils, TifQuik is
well-suited to the area. Since Shiloh Farms has
been producing TifQuik, they have discovered that it is
a very hardy cultivar, being able to produce more
tonnage with less fertilizer and less precipitation than
other warm season grasses, including Tifton 9.
TifQuik also emerges faster, and therefore covers the
field faster than Tifton 9, eliminating the opportunity
for weed seed to emerge and provides for earlier grazing
and earlier harvesting.
Shiloh's observations of TifQuik confirm the research
that Bill Anderson of the USDA-ARS Genetics and Breeding
Unit in Tifton, GA has experienced with his greenhouse
studies and replicated outdoor plots in Tifton.
