Triticale Cover Crop Plant

A cross between cereal rye and Durum wheat, Triticale is an annual similar in hardiness to cereal rye with both spring and winter varieties available. Triticale produces good biomass and will make forage for grazing, control erosion, build soil organic matter, and scavenge nutrients. A deep and fibrous root system makes Triticale a popular component in mixes that include Annual Ryegrass, Radish, Rapeseed, Oats, Peas, Vetches, and Clovers.
