Product Description

Description

HyTon winter triticale is the newest genetics from Europe. Triticale is a cross between winter wheat and cereal rye. Its winter hardiness allows it to grow later in the fall than other cover crops. Its fibrous roots continue to grow through the winter down to 60 inches or more, building soil organic matter. Triticale’s rapid growth suppresses winter weeds better than rye. Strong prostrate fall/winter growth habit that suppresses weeds and gives superior soil coverage for reducing erosion potential.  It produces a lot of bio-mass that is good as a mulch mat, forage or straw. Triticale has an allelopathic effect on weeds and following corn crops. 

  • Newest European genetics
  • Reduced awn variety
  • Above average seedling vigor
  • Very high fiber digestibility

Management

HyTon Triticale can be winter grazed, plowed under in spring as a green manure, cut and made into baleage, rolled after boot stage to provide a mulch, or allowed to go to grain and combined. 

Establishment

Drill or no-till 100-120 lbs./A at a depth of 1/2 to 1 inch deep. Can be mixed with hairy vetch, crimson clover and annual ryegrass. Use about 40 lbs./A of nitrogen in the fall to help establish and 70 lbs./A again in the spring if it’s going to be used as a forage.
