4210. McClintic, Dennis. Feb. 1990. What ever happened to triticale?. The Furrow, p. 17-18..
Triticale plantings in the PNW have declined to about 5,000 acres, as government set-aside requirements have shrunk. This crop does not count against base and thus was ideal for use on set-aside. Also, its price is below wheat and barley, although it has a better amino acid balance and higher feed value than corn or wheat. Demand is growing in regions like the southeast where expanding hog and poultry operations are interested in the grain.

Describes potential uses for triticale and production considerations. Some researchers have concluded that triticale is best suited to drought-prone areas with poor soil, where wheat production is marginal. Triticale is mostly used as a feed grain similar to barley. It also has some use as a poultry feed due to a high lysine content. It makes good forage and silage as well.
