Winter Triticale

$0.45 lb

Winter Triticale is a winter annual grain developed through a cross between winter wheat and winter rye. It is commonly planted for forage production and displays desirable traits from each of its parent species. Winter Triticale is extremely winter hardy like cereal rye but produces high quality forage much like winter wheat. It is a mid-maturity winter annual in comparison with rye and forage winter wheat. Winter Triticale can be used in northern climates that experience harsh winter conditions with little risk of winter kill. Winter Triticale is very drought tolerant and is suitable for dryland conditions and lighter soils. It will perform best on well drained to moderately drained soils as extended periods of standing water can result in winter kill. Winter Triticale is moderately tolerant to saline soils.
