Byron’s Fall Triticale Organic can be harvested as both haylage and pasture. They have been bred to have a wider harvest window than other small grains. The optimum harvest time is at the flag leaf stage (pre-boot) for dairy quality haylage. At this stage and with adequate fertility, expected DM production is around two tons dry matter(DM). At this stage expected Milk/Ton ratings are in the same levels as corn silage! Yield can double as the crop moves on to heifer quality. When cutting, use the wide-swath method for rapid dry down and to allow for higher sugar and DM retention.
Byron’s Fall Triticale Organic are seeded at 70 to 100 lbs per acre. Seed should be placed 1/2 to 3/4″ deep for earlier plantings. A deeper seed placement (1 1/2″) is required as the planting season reaches mid-September. For Triticale Plus, a seed depth of 1/2″ is mandated by the smaller Ryegrass seed. Fertility needs are only about 30 units of N in the Fall. Top dress an additional 100-150 units early in the Spring for top yield and protein levels.
