Interpretive Summary: NE422T triticale (X.Triticosecale rimpaui Wittm.) was developed cooperatively by the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA-ARS. NE422T was released primarily for its superior forage production in rainfed winter cereal production systems in the central Great Plains. NE422T was performance tested in Nebraska grain yield nurseries starting in 1997 and in forage yield trials in 1997 and 1998. The main advantages of NE422T when compared to most other forage triticale cultivars, within its area of adaptation, is its high forage yield coupled with a good grain yield and its broad adaptation in rainfed production systems. NE422T should be well adapted to most rainfed winter annual forage production systems, with high forage yield potential in the Central Plains. It should also perform well as a second crop in irrigated production systems, where NE422T is planted following a harvested summer annual crop and the forage is harvested the following year before planting another annual summer crop. The Nebraska Foundation Seed Division, Dep. of Agronomy and Horticulture, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE 68583 has NE422T foundation seed available to qualified certified seed enterprises. The first commercial sale of NE422T was made in August, 2001. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will not have seed for distribution.

Technical Abstract: NE422T triticale (X.Triticosecale rimpaui Wittm.) was developed cooperatively by the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA-ARS. NE422T is an F3-derived F4 line that was released primarily for its superior forage production in rainfed winter cereal production systems in the central Great Plains. NE422T was performance tested in Nebraska grain yield nurseries starting in 1997 and in forage yield trials in 1997 and 1998. The main advantages of NE422T when compared to most other forage triticale cultivars, within its area of adaptation, is its high forage yield coupled with a good grain yield and its broad adaptation in rainfed production systems. NE422T should be well adapted to most rainfed winter annual forage production systems, with high forage yield potential in the Central Plains.
