Our 60/40 Pea/Triticale blend is an alternative spring forage option to the other commonly used mixtures of forage peas and small grains such as oats or barley. Spring triticale has advantages in yield while maintaining excellent forage quality. Forage Peas are very high in crude protein and digestibility and have good yield when blended with a grain crop such as triticale that can provide structure for them to grow upwards with. Pea/Triticale blends will be a later maturing spring forage option with excellent yield potential as a hay or haylage crop.
