Timothy is one of the later maturing cool season grass species and is well adapted to the cool, humid regions of the US and Eastern Canada. Palatability, excellent winter hardiness and an extensive seedling root system are some of timothy’s important features. Primarily used for hay, timothy is well suited for either pure grass hay or in mixtures with alfalfa.
Dawn timothy is a new, early maturing timothy that has demonstrated outstanding forage yields throughout its area of adaptation. It is well suited for pure timothy hay as well as in mixtures with late maturing orchardgrass or alfalfa. Dawn has demonstrated good regrowth after first harvest for potential second or third harvest yields.
