Situation: Field was seeded by a previous landowner in spring 2000 to alfalfa with triticale and pea cover crop which was harvested for forage (but I don’t know when). Alfalfa stand was determined not to be good enough to keep last summer. New owner of land sprayed field with Roundup and seeded winter wheat last fall. The wheat was purchased directly from Kaltenberg and several neighbors planted the same seed lot without any problem. This field has a lot of what appears to be rye or possibly triticale (awns are bristly). It is not uniformly distributed in the field, adding further evidence that the original wheat seed lot was not contaminated. Clearly, this is a winter cereal (too early for spring triticale to head). I was under the impression that most triticale-pea mixtures had spring varieties. Further, if harvested for forage, how could there be any viable seed that would regrow as volunteer? How do you distinguish a triticale head from a rye head? Is it possible to separate wheat seed from rye/triticale?
