Cultural Practices:

TriCal Triticale requires no change in equipment, land preparation or other cultural practices commonly used for other cereal crops.

Quality:

Meets or Exceeds Quality of other traditional cereal forages.

University studies confirm that TriCal triticale:

  • Is more efficient at uptake of nitrogen per ton of silage than is corn.
  • Produces more pounds of milk per ton of dry matter than does corn silage.
  • Is highly palatable as a grazing forage resource and as a source of silage varies from good to excellent for digestibility, crude protein and other measures of forage quality.

Performance:

TriCal Triticale is the “cereal of choice” for forage needs…grazing, silage or hay.
2015 Research data from the Great Plains show that TriCal Triticale grazing potential was 118% of barley and 155% of wheat. Triticale consistently out-performs wheat and barley for silage and forage.
