Triticale for Bird Cover

* Required Fields



Organic Triticale Seed

Triticale is a close relative of wheat. When durum wheat is pollinated with rye pollen, the cross is used in a breeding program to produce these stable, self-replicating varieties. As a rule, triticale combines the yield potential and grain quality of wheat with the disease and environmental tolerance (including soil conditions) of rye. Only recently has it been developed into a commercially viable crop. Depending on the cultivar, triticale can more or less resemble either of its parents. It is grown mostly for forage or fodder. Triticale can be used as a greenmanure/covercrop on its own or mixed with Vetch or Crimson Clover. It is also commonly used for bird cover.

Triticale yield, stress tolerance, and disease resistance (except ergot) are typically greater than wheat. In general, triticale has superior drought resistance compared to barley, wheat, and oats.
