Climax Timothy has been used widely in both Canada and the U.S. since 1947. Developed in Canada, Climax is a cultivar of common timothy.

Palatability and superior winter hardiness are timothy’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 somewhat limited. Timothy tolerates a cutting management much better than grazing.
