Timothy ORGANIC (Phleum pratensis)

Ref: TIMO

One of the most important and flexible species which is used both environmentally and agriculturally. It is a very common species found in pasture throughout the UK. It will grow abundantly on heavy ground and, although it only has a shallow root structure, it still persists well on lighter land in dry years. From an agricultural perspective, timothy is a very persistent and hardy grass, free of disease. The forage it produces is acceptable to most classes of stock. There is another form of timothy known as smaller catstail (Phleum bertolonii), which is shorter and less dominant (2,500,000 seeds per kg).
