Winter triticale is an excellent option for growers looking to produce high-quality forage from a winter cereal. Being a cross between winter rye and durum wheat, winter triticale has been bred for the quality of wheat with the productivity of winter rye. Expect yields to be comparable to winter rye, but planting date is more important. For best results, plant winter triticale by the 1st of October in Wisconsin. Plant at 100-120 lbs/acre at 1" deep.
