Did You Know?

Triticale was first mentioned in Scottish Botanist’s journals as early as 1875. It is one of the first crops to be cross pollinated long before the concept of “hybrid” entered the seed world. Taking advantage of wheat’s disease resistance and ryes rapid growth triticale forage quality is superior to either of its parents. Triticale as a feed grain is equal to wheat and barley.
