Timothy is useful in cool, wet and heavy conditions. It is the most winter hardy of all the main grass species and produces early growth and can tolerate lower fertility than ryegrass. The seed is very small and should be sown no deeper than 10 to 15mm. It can be slow to establish but once it has got going it is extremely hardy and persistent and it is acceptable to most stock. Its digestibility tends to decline less rapidly than other grass-sown species, but this decline starts at an earlier growth stage. It is particularly useful in specialist mixtures such as haymaking.
