      Triticale - Kicker


      Triticale is a small grain crop that is the reult of a cross between wheat (Triticum) and rye (Secale). Generally triticale combines the yield potential and quality of wheat with the disease and environmental tolerance of rye. The triticale root system is aggressive and binds lighter soils better than wheat, barley, and oats. Triticale is tolerant of a wide variety of soils and typically performs better than other ceral grains in water logged soils as well as alkaline soils (high pH). Triticale grain is about twice as soft as wheat. While this provides a milling advantage, it also increase insect damage during storage.

      Kicker triticale is a completely facultative awnless triticale and has proven to be an excellent option in grazing or silage systems with outstanding regrowth. Kicker is drought resistant and rust tolerant. Kicker has a fair winter hardiness and vigorous fall and spring growth.
