Abstract:
This study was carried out to determine silage quality, herbage and hay yield of different triticale cultivars (Tacettinbey, Tatlicak-97 and Karma-2000). In the research, besides herbage and hay yield of triticale cultivars, dry matter, organic matter, crude protein, crude lipid, crude fiber, nitrogen-free extract and crude ash, silage pH, flieg point, metabolizable energy and physical quality of triticale silage were examined. Among the cultivars, while the highest herbage yield (22860 kg ha-1), hay yield (14270 kg ha-1), dry matter (43.4%), crude protein content (8.3%), crude lipid (2.91%), crude fiber (27.1%), flieg point (127.8) and the best pH value (4.1) were observed in Karma-2000 cultivar, physical characteristics such as smell, structure and color of the cultivars were similar among cultivars.
