Del Voight - Penn State Extension
Harvested some plots today as part of a small grain forage study. I noted today that the triticale was at boot stage, barley was at GS10.8 with fully elongated heads, wheat is at GS8 and rye was at GS10 with heads emerged but not elongated. I am currently processing the dry matter yields but it appears that while the barley may win this plot for YPA the rye will most likely combine both YPA and quality. Triticale will most likely be fairly high in quality but lower in yield. Once I get the dry matter and quality tests back I will update this post.
