TILLAGEMAX MIXES

Tillage Radish®

CCS Winter Forage

Triticale

THIS MIX IS EXCELLENT FOR:

3 Scavenging and storing N

3 Absorbing manure nutrients

3 Improving water infiltration

For Easy Control and Aggressive Spring Biomass

TALLADEGA provides a bundle of benefits, starting with the amazing

Tillage Radish® taproot that drills right through tough compaction.

The winter hardy CCS Winter Forage Triticale excels at soaking up any

leftover N from a previous crops or manure application. Can be used as a

forage by doubling the seeding rates. This is the mix you need where it is

certain there is plenty of N or you have nutrients in manure you want to

catch in the fall and release in the spring.

Planting: Plant 3-10 weeks prior to first killing frost

Seeding Depth: 1”

PLANTING TIPS & SEEDING RATE

Comparable seed on Drill chart is Wheat

Seeding Rate:

- Drilling: 40 lbs/acre

- Broadcast / Aerial: 50 lbs/acre

- Precision Planting (15” with 5” in-row): 30 lbs/acre

(Kinze Brush Meter with Backing Plate - 60 Cell Soybean Plate)

- For Forage: Increase rate to 40-50 lbs/acre

Control: It is recommended to control when CCS Winter Forage

Triticale reaches 18” in height. Use one quart of glyphosate and one pint

of a 2,4-D product which will control any Tillage Radish® that may not

have been winter killed.

FORAGE POTENTIAL

Seeding rate 40-50 lbs. To maximize forage potential, harvest at early bloom.
