Triticale is a cross between cereal rye and Durum wheat, therefore having some characteristics of both parents. Triticale is similar in winter hardiness to cereal rye with just a little higher germinating temperature of 38°F. Triticale has a deep and fibrous root system that produces good biomass and will make great forage for grazing, control erosion, build soil organic matter, and scavenge nutrients. Triticale is popular in mixes that include annual ryegrass, radish, rapeseed, oats, peas, vetches, and clovers. Management of triticale is similar to cereal rye.
