The Importance of Triticale in Germany


Triticale takes a firm position in the German market and is grown on about 400.000 hectares which is about 5 % of the cerreal area (without maize). The development of triticale cultivation can be seen under: Triticale Area [20 KB]

In every single year one of the past 22 years, triticale has surpassed rye in yield by 7,4 q/ha in the average which is about 15,2 %,

- as ascertained by the Statistical Federal Office of Germany -. For details, please click: comparisonofyieldsingermany.xlsx [15 KB]

Certainly, rye more often than triticale is being grown on poorer locations which partly might be the reason for the higher yields of triticale. Nevertheless, a study comparing the yields of rye with those triticale in official trials, verifies that triticale is as good in yields as rye - on some locations lower, on others better, and in the average equal.

The decisision what to grow - rye or triticale ? - should not only be based on the yields which can be expect, but as well under consideration that

> triticale is about 10 % more valuable in animal feeding than rye

and

> triticale realizes about 10 % higher prices than rye in many regions.

Only

> on the typical rye locations where a minimum 10 % higher yield from rye in comparison to triticale might be expected

and

> in regions with good demand for milling rye

it might be preferably to grow rye instead of triticale. In other words:

Triticale can successfully be grown on more locations than expected!

Some special features should be observed when growing triticale which can be found under Recommendations .
