Triticale is a cereal crop, whose potential has not been realised in the UK. Elsewhere, particularly Poland, Germany and Sweden, it finds its place on the farm and market. Inherently, with a lower protein than wheat, triticale could have an important role in the emerging bioethanol market, where its growing cost efficiency will provide cost effective feedstock with excellent functionality.
Senova triticale varieties are now being grown as a crop for AD plants. Triticale is a more cost effective crop option and with early maturity, it is attracting further interest for this use.
Triticale produces grain with high lycine values and so is ideal for on-farm feeding. As a versatile crop other uses of triticale include whole crop production, organic grain production, game cover and thatching.
Senova triticale varieties were at the core of a collaborative project investigating the crop's potential as a feedstock for ethanol and the use of DDGS. An important element of the project was to optiise wheta and triticale yields against nitrogen requirements and to investigate the farm and market benefits that triticale can deliver. A summary report of findings from an AHDB project and this Innovate UK funded project has been published by AHDB. Click on the link below to download the report.
‘Understanding Triticale’ aims to provide further understanding of how triticale can and does perform in trials and on farm, when compared to wheat, and how it achieves its yield.
AHDB candidate, harvest 2017. High yields, very short, stiff straw and excellent specific weight.
In recent seasons, with increasing disease pressure, yellow rust has been found in varieties currently on the AHDB Descriptive List. Some varieties have more resistance than others. Growers should be aware and use a fungicide where appropriate. Please consult your agronomist.
