- 30% Forage Oats + 30% Spring Triticale + 40% Forage Peas
- Optional mix taking advantage of the yield of forage oats and the higher protein level of the triticale and forage peas
- Seeding rates: 90 - 110 # / acre when used as a nurse crop for under seeded legume
- 120 - 125 # / acre when seeded alone
- Harvest is generally 55 - 60 days after planting, mid to late boot stage of triticale
- Overall harvest window for OPT mix to provide maximum quality forage is 5 - 7 days, slight shorter than Green River Mix
- Yeilds of 2.5 - 4.5 ton DM can be achieved with good fertility.
- When harvested at mid/early boot stage, protein levels will be slightly higher than Green River Mix
- Proper Nitrogen levels are needed to maximize tonnage. Responds very well to Sulfur applications with increases in yield and protein level.
