This annual wetland grass is a waterfowl favorite especially in the wetlands of California.  Swamp timothy can grow in many different conditions but prefers seasonally flooded wetlands.  The plants are prolific seed producers that yield over 1,000 lb of seed per acre and at over one million seeds per pound; swamp timothy readily reseeds itself year after year.  Swamp timothy can also handle moderate salinity making it a great option for areas that deal with brackish water conditions.  Planting can be done by broadcasting in to wet areas in the spring and early summer or by broadcasting/drilling in to a worked seed bed that can be irrigated.  Plants will reach maturity in 70-90 days.
