We know that every decision you make, from the seed you plant to the practices you adopt, can significantly impact your yield, profitability, and the sustainability of your operations.

One such decision is the use of forage crops, specifically triticale. Using triticale not only improves soil health and boosts your acre productivity but also opens doors to financial incentives that can enhance your farm’s profitability.

Many crop farmers across the United States are eligible for cover crop incentive payments through the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). These payments, part of the NRCS Environmental Quality Incentives Payment (EQIP) program, are designed to help farmers begin the process of cover cropping. The rates vary by state and can range from $50 to $75 per acre or more, depending on the level set by the state NRCS office. Most counties allow the harvest of a cover crop as forage. To learn more, you can read this article from Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE).  

These incentive payments often completely cover the cost of using cover crops, making the transition to using cover crops like triticale affordable and profitable. And it’s not just about the immediate financial gain. The use of triticale as a cover crop can lead to increased forage tonnage, driving your profitability even further.

At TriCal, we are committed to providing high-quality source seed, designed to deliver superior tonnage and drive your profitability. We believe in the power of triticale as a cover crop, and we are here to support you in harnessing this power for the success of your farm.

With TriCal Superior Forage triticale, the best decision is the right decision.
