Tenho timothy can be spring or late summer planted. It needs to be planted into a very firm seedbed keeping the depth 1/8 to 1/4 inch. It is slow to establish so control weed pressure and leave 4 to 6 weeks from seeding date to summer drought for spring plantings and the same period before frost for fall plantings. In the Sough timothy is often fall planted as a cover crop, harvested or grazed in the spring and then killed off to make way for spring crops.
Choose an earlier-heading variety when combing with alfalfa because timothy will not tolerate harvest during the jointing (stem elongation) and early-heading stages. Keep the cutting height 3-4 inches for stand persistence. Use a late-heading variety for grazing. It tolerates mechanical harvest well, with proper fertility. Fall cuttings should be early enough to allow carbohydrate reserves to be replenished. Early application of nitrogen will significantly boost production.
