Tenho Timothy Seed has high palatability and superior winter hardiness are Tenho’s most important features. It does very well on wet, peaty and heavy textured soils. The establishment of this species is rather slow and summer production is often limited. Tenho Timothy tolerates cutting management well. Tenho can perform well under controlled grazing.
Tenho Timothy is a cool season grass and adapted to cooler and moister areas. Tenho is best adapted to areas that receive greater than 15 inches of annual rainfall.
Tenho Timothy grows in a variety of soil types, from clay to sandy and tolerates soaked soil after spring flooding. It prefers well-drained, moist, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0.
In order to maximize the benefits of a high quality timothy, it should be well managed with seed in a fine, well-prepared seedbed. Brillion seeders or broadcasting the seed followed by a cultipacker works best. If a regular drill is used, we suggest crossing the field twice, at an angle.
