Flex 719 has been a top pick in our trials because it's standability and desirability of appearance. Flex 719 is a facultative triticale, and it produces good protein and digestibility with the amount of leaves it has. Swathing it in the boot stage ensures good digestibility and protein values. Good early seedling vigor provides grazing in the fall and winter months. It is a top performer of the silage trials the past three years running.
Suggested Growing Regions:
Fall and Winter Grazing
Seeds per pound: 13,000 - 14,000
