The search for the perfect cover crop continues. In one study being conducted over two years in multiple locations in North Carolina, triticale is looking like it might have the right stuff to provide cover and biomass. Triticale is not a new crop, but it's use as a cover crop is new enough to generate enthusiasm. Mike Carrol, North Carolina State Extension agent in Craven County, is conducting trials as part of his Master's thesis work at North Carolina State University. He's comparing wheat, triticale and rye cover crops planted later in the year at different seeding rates. He's examining which small grain cover will provide desirable results and act as a rotation crop in continuous cotton production.
