The PS 2000 Brand Timothy Story

   PS 2000 Timothy is one of the highest yielding, medium maturing, timothy varieties on the market. On average it heads 4-5 days earlier than Climax and 4-5 days later than Sunrise Brand timothy. PS 2000 Timothy is winter hardy and is suggested for use throughout the Northeast and Eastern Canada by growers who rely on a medium maturity timothy to grow with alfalfa, red clover or birdsfoot trefoil.
   Yield trials in one 2 year PennState trial show PS 2000 averaged 132% of Climax. Similar results were observed in a 3 year trial conducted by workers at the University of Wisconsin.
   When grown alone, without a legume, and properly fertilized with nitrogen, PS 2000 is a high yielding, medium maturing timothy for hay or silage.
