Triticale BST1

Of all the cereal crops triticale is probably the best for use in game cover situations. Triticale is a hybrid of wheat and rye and will grow on the poorest of soils with pH as low as 4.9. It is very drought and cold tolerant ensuring that it will last well into the season. Triticale shows some tolerance to rabbit attack. It is an ideal crop where maize is not an option and very good in marginal situations. As well as providing food and cover for game birds, it provides great habitat for a number of the declining species of songbirds, such as the Corn Bunting.
