Saddlebred Timothy is a variety selected for its earlier maturing characteristics. It is well suited for the farmer looking for the many advantages of Climax, but would like earlier maturity. Saddlebred has been bred in competition with other grasses and legumes, and therefore, makes it reliable in all grass mixtures. Saddlebred, in dry matter yield tests has out yielded other timothy varieties, including Climax, by 5-10%. Saddlebred is highly resistant to leaf rust, leaf spot and purple eyespot. Seed at 8-10 lbs. alone, 4-6 lbs. in mixes.
