Triticale (trit-ah-kay-lee) is a relatively new, synthetic small-grain crop produced by crossing Durum wheat with rye. Triticale was developed to combine the high crude protein and digestible energy of wheat with the high yields and protein quality of rye. Triticale has the ability to grow in acidic soils and extreme climates, and has larger yields than rye, making it a practical and economical feedstuff. Triticale is not a major crop in the United States; therefore, it has not been widely fed to livestock.
