Worldwide there are hundreds of varieties of triticale. They differ widely in important traits such as cold tolerance, growth habit, maturity, length of awns (“beards”), and yield. Some varieties are for grazing, some for silage, others for grain. Major problems can occur when a variety is sold for the wrong use or brought into an area for which it is not adapted.
Choosing the right variety of triticale is the key to a successful and profitable outcome.
