Timothy Grass Seed - (Claire or Climax) Timothy grass is a perennial bunch grass with shallow and fibrous roots used for pasture, hay production and forage for horses, cattle and livestock. Timothy grass is best adapted to northern (cold) cooler climates and may be planted with clovers, alfalfa and other legumes for food plots for deer and other wildlife. Timothy grass performs well in moister areas and is very tolerant to acidity. Timothy Grass is well suited for use in pastures, rotational grazing, hay, conservation, erosion control and silage in the north eastern and north central climates in the US. Varieties including Climax and Claire are common for pastures and affordable for seeding.
Timothy does not tolerate drought, salt, shade or alkalinity. It is well suite for hay production. Because of its bunch growth habit, it is less competitive for nutrients when grown in mixtures with legumes. Spring growth is not too early although yield and palatability are very high. Main growth occurs in early summer. It is not tolerant of close, continuous grazing. The tall shoots are easily overgrazed and as a pasture plant it is relatively short lived.
