​Early Maturity

Promesse 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. It has performed well when used in pasture mixes, or blended with forage crops when cutting for hay. It grows well in a variety of soil conditions.

​Yield Results

Promesse, in dry matter yield tests have out yielded other timothy varieties, including Climax, by 5 – 10%.

​Disease Resistance

Promesse is highly resistant to leaf rust, leaf spot and purole eyespot.
