Catapult Timothy

Explosive Spring Vigour & Summer Regrowth

 

Catapult is an aggressive growing, early-to-mid maturity timothy. A semi-erect growth habit, medium to dark green color, and taller plant height are characteristic of this variety. Bred for spring vigour and summer regrowth, Catapult comes out of the ground fast with rapid recovery after cutting. Its superior stand persistence lasts all-season and continues year after year. Ideal companion for legumes, other forage grasses, or as a pure stand.
