Abstract

Triticale (a wheat-rye hybrid) must compete for acreage mainly with barley and wheat. Assuming no price differential among the cereal feed grains, the yields and production costs for triticale must be equivalent or more favorable before a substantial triticale production can be anticipated in California. The results presented here indicate that, under most conditions, triticale does not yield better than other feed grains. Production costs are expected to be similar for triticale, barley, and wheat except in areas where more irrigations are required for late maturing triticale varieties.
