• TRITICALE COMPARED WITH OATS AND WEAL BARLEY AS A FORAGE AT PT. MACKENZIE

      Trials conducted with entries of oats, barley, and triticale on the university tract in 1987 and 1988 provided the first research information on triticale for forage use at Pt. MacKenzie. Triticale is a hybrid resulting from a cross between wheat and rye. The rye ancestry would confer greater acid tolerance than is possessed by wheat alone. In previous trials with cereals on the moderately to strongly acidic soils of Pt. MacKenzie, the better yielding oat varieties have out produced barley (Mitchell 1983 and unpublished data).
