Endeavour Triticale is a long season Triticale which is a semi awnless “Dual purpose” Triticale offering grain crops as well as pasture feed. Being a mid-late maturity pasture, Dual purpose varieties can be sown very early, grazed during winter then shut up for forage conservation or grain recovery.
It has excellent grain and dry matter recovery post grazing with grain yields commonly exceeding 10-20% of other varieties.
It is a long season variety that can be sown as early as mid-February if seasonal conditions (i.e. rainfall) allow, but is best sown through March to early April.
It has a yield advantage over wheat and barley in acidic soils (pH less than 4.5CaCl2 ) which are high in aluminium (greater than 10% of the total cations)
It has good straw strength
It is resistant to cereal cyst nematode (CCN) and excellent rust resistance
