An annual mix that combines Spring Triticale, Italian ryegrass, and forage peas. Triticale adds agronomic stability for those growers not experienced with growing ryegrasses and more bulk for easier silo filling and unloading. The ryegrass in the mixture adds higher fiber digestibility and sugar content. This is a cool season crop to be planted early spring for big yields in June or seeded in August/September for winter forage.
- High Yields
- Tremendous Quality, high NDFD and sugar
- Italian ryegrass will not product seed heads.
- Quick to Establish
Triticale can be utilized in grazing or haylage operation. It has a wider window of harvest than 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 dry matter per acre (6 tons of high-quality feed).
Seed should be placed at 0.50 to 0.75 inch depth in a firm seedbed. In the case of no-till, make certain the existing vegetation is properly killed.
