Growing Areas

Hilliard appears to fit well across the province. At this point, Hilliard performs well across multiple soil types. However, like any racehorse variety, place on productive soils with good background fertility for optimal performance. Its short stature and standability allow it to handle higher nitrogen and sulpher rates.
