Timbale is a high yielding lucerne seed variety suitable for use as a protein-rich forage crop.
The Timbale lucerne variety is semi-dormant, with a dormancy rating in the 4-5 range, making it ideally suited for the UK climate.
Timbale will generally produce four to five silage cuts per season and can persist for up to six years with the appropriate management.
