SPRING TRITICALE 

New varieties have proved to be higher yielding than first and second wheats in results trialled by ADAS (funded by AHDB). The resultant crops can be used in various areas of animal food especially in pig and poultry having higher levels of lysine. Other uses for the harvested crop are for thatching, Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plants, in stewardship schemes and whole-crop forage. In the field it has high potential yield, resistance to Septoria, Take-All tolerance and fewer pest problems, as well as a natural resistance to grazing rabbits. It is well suited to marginal ground having a massive rooting system which allows for better growth in dry or wet ground conditions.
