TRICAL® 2700 is a widely adapted, highly versatile triticale for grazing, silage and boot-stage hay. It is excellent planted alone, or blended with other cereals or forage peas. Very fast establishment, quick forage. High protein, digestibility and yield – proven to have outstanding digestibility (IVTD) and crude protein. Significantly higher yields than other boot-stage cereal forages. Excellent source of digestible fiber that is vital for the health and productivity of dairy and beef cattle – digestible fiber (NDFd) provides energy along with the benefits of fiber for rumen health. TRICAL® 2700 receives high ratings for NDFd. Superior tolerance to disease, lagoon water and tough growing conditions – compared to other cereal forages. One of the best options if you need forage fast, TRICAL® 2700 has been researched in numerous university trials with very high tonnage and quality. TRICAL® 2700 is the result of 20 years of selection of triticale for forage quality and tonnage. TRICAL® 2700 has been very successful as a winter triticale in some areas.
- Very good and highly digestible
- Fast establishing
- Good for grazing, haylage & balage
- Lodge resistant
- Soil erosion control
The Trical® breeding program has been developed over the last 30 years with a focus on quality. The triticale varieties Byron Seeds have selected are the best in the industry with a research and breeding program to back them. These varieties have been tested extensively to ensure that we have the highest fiber digestibility possible while still maintaining maximum yield. We have selected these varieties because we understand that high quality forage is imperative to stay competitive in the dairy/beef industry.
Triticale can be utilized in grazing or haylage operation. It has a wider window of harvest then most cereal grains allowing it to be more versatile in inclement weather while maintaining excellent quality. When cutting, lay it in a wide swath to get maximum drying. If proper fertility is applied, triticale will yield up to 2.5 tons of DM/A (6 tons of high quality feed).
Seeding rates are 100 to 120 lbs per acre. Seed should be placed 1/2 to 3/4 inch in a firm seedbed. In the case of no-till make certain the existing vegetation is properly killed.
