Sandy to heavy soil
NPK+S fertilization for an optimal start to growth in spring.
Nitrate-containing fertilizers are the best suited to efficient fertilization.
Triticale is sensitive to copper, manganese, and zinc.
The demand for soil quality is in between that of rye and wheat.
Triticale is sown between mid-September and mid-October. Because of its vulnerability to diseases and fusarium, it is best planted after foliage plants. Triticale is also often cultivated after wheat. In order to reduce the risk of fusarium head blight, activities that accelerate the decomposition of crop residues (soil cultivation) are beneficial.
