Impactor

Make an Impact on Your Rations

Impactor is a high yielding, medium maturing timothy. It is characterized by a semierect growth habit, consistent dark green leaf color and large seed head. Powerful rust resistance and winterhardiness contribute to Impactor’s quality and persistence – where it has shown good neutral detergent fiber digestibility (%NDFD) and consistent second cut performance. Well suited for pure stands and compaction hay market use.

Impactor was selected for plant vigor, stem rust resistance, seed yield and winterhardiness. Parental plants were evaluated for weakness, winter damage and small or few panicles, plants exhibiting these characteristics were discarded.
