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. After a number of years selling seperate varieties of winter and spring triticale, we now sell just one all-purpose variety - Amarillo.
