The introduction of a Spring-sown Triticale in 2003 brought this excellent crop within reach of many more UK livestock farmers who prefer to plant crops in the Spring. Triticale is an excellent cereal feedstuff with high levels of protein and lysine. The crop is also easy to grow, has low input requirements and is very suitable for both wholecrop and combining.

Amarillo is a new variety but is now top of the UK recommended list for 2010 with the highest yield. With excellent disease resistance, Amarillo was the most widely grown winter triticale in the UK last year, and we expect it to become even more popular as more and more farmers try it.
