The Sunrise II Brand Timothy Story

  Sunrise II Brand Timothy is an exclusive new winter hardy, early maturing timothy. It heads 12 days earlier than Climax and is ideal for use with Preferred Seed Company’s high yielding alfalfas in aggressive 3 to 5 cut management programs for hay or silage.
   Developed in the tough climactic conditions of Northern Minnesota, Sunrise II, because of its early heading date, matches well with the early first harvest cutting schedules of newer improved alfalfas. It also grows back rapidly between cuttings providing higher aftermath yields than is true of many varieties. Based on its origin and known performance Sunrise II is well adapted throughout the Northeastern states and eastern Canada as well as eastern Ohio.
   When grown alone, no legume, and properly fertilized with nitrogen, Sunrise II is a high yielding, early maturing timothy for hay or silage.
