Forage Wheat & Triticale

Many cereals species can be retained and conserved as valuable source of forage, to later feed livestock in periods of feed shortages. Some cereal species and varieties are better suited to specific forage applications over others, depending on their quality, growth habit, environment and seasonality.

The following varieties produce high levels of dry matter, and are suitable for production of silage and hay

Illabo Wheat

  • High yielding, dual purpose winter wheat with a compact canopy
  • Mid-fast maturing and is 2-3 days quicker to mature than Wedgetail
  • APH in South Eastern Zone and AH quality classification in Southern Zone
  • Early sow to utilize moisture and maximise dry matter growth to fill the feed gap
  • Acid soil tolerance (MT), strong Stripe Rust (RMR) and Black Point resistance (MRMS)
