  • Climax Timothy is a leafy, fine-stemmed, tall perennial bunch grass.
  • Relatively short-lived, cool-season perennial that has a shallow, compact, and fibrous root system.
  • It is used primarily for hay but is also used for pasture and silage.
  • It is palatable and nutritious.
  • It makes a great companion grass for alfalfa or clover. 
  • Thrives best in rich, moist bottomlands and in finer texture soils, such as clay loams. It does not do well in coarser soils.
  • Performs best with a pH between 5.5 to 7.0. Tolerant to somewhat poorly drained soils, but will not tolerate wet soils, or soils prone to standing water.
  • Does not tolerate drought or prolonged high temperatures.
  • Stands become weak under close and continuous grazing. High yielding, high quality and rust resistant, timothy grass matures 7 to 10 days later than most common varieties, giving that leeway often necessary for more favorable climatic conditions for field curing.
  • Ideal grass for late-spring grazing. Timothy is oftentimes selectively grazed due to its very palatable flavor, soon disappearing when planted with species the livestock considers not so palatable.
