Triticale (trit-ah-kay-lee) 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.

Triticale can be sown late in Autumn, early Winter, it can be grazed, made into silage, used in a wholecrop, or it can be combined.

Triticale yield, stress tolerance, and disease resistance (except ergot) are typically greater than wheat.

• Triticale is generally superior to wheat for pasture, silage, hay, and for grain used for feed.

• In general, triticale has superior drought resistance compared to barley, wheat, and oats.

CLAUDIUS advantages:

  • High to very high yield, 7 % above TULUS
  • Long straw combined with high lodging- and disease resistance
  • High drought resistance, high frost tolerance
  • Variety for kernel and silage use
