Triticale

by

Triticale is a grain that is a hybrid of wheat and rye developed in Scotland and Sweden in the late 19th century. Its name comes from the words triticum (Latin for wheat) and secale (Latin for rye). Triticale combines the high yield potential and good grain quality of wheat with the disease and environmental tolerance of rye. For more information, go to Wikipedia.
