Virkajärvi, Perttu (2006) Timothy and timothy mixtures as a pasture crop. In: Rit Lbhl, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists (10), pp. 26-30.
Despite the relatively low tolerance against grazing and peaked DM production, timothy can be used effiently for grazing, especially in mixtures with meadow fescue. The growth processes lead to specific management options, e.g. early turnout, high pre-grazing sward heights, flexible grazing systems with large variation in rotation length, and possibly part-time grazing.
