Triticale is a hybrid crop that is a cross between wheat and ryecorn and is great as a green crop or whole-crop silage. It has a similar growth habit to wheat, with a tall, upright stem and long, narrow leaves. Triticale is a popular cereal crop, particularly as supplementary feed for dairy cows. It is a high-yielding crop under optimal conditions, along with having an excellent tolerance to rust. It is also a cultivar often used in crop rotations to help break disease cycles and improve soil fertility.
