Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 14, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, January 14, 1975 MEXICO CITY (AP) Scientists at the inter- national centre where Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman E. Borlaug produced his "miracle wheat" say the next big commercial breakthrough may be a wheat-rye com- bination that will help feed the world's hungry millions. It's called triticale. Scientists say it can out- produce wheat by hundreds of pounds per acre in poor- ly fertilized soil. Its name is a compound of the generic names for wheat iriticum and It can be turned into ac- ceptable bread, Indian chapatis or Mexican tor- tillas. Hungary started making a rye-type triticale bread in 1968. Canada and Spain have been using it since 1970 and Argentina and the United States have developed it as a fodder crop. A Muleshoe, Tex., manufacturer is selling triticale bread, cake, mar- carom and pancake flour in American supermarkets. Researchers Frank Zillinsky of Medicine Hat, Aita., and Herb Floyd of Youngstown, Ohio, said trjticale's real contribution may be in giving un- derdeveloped countries with poorly fertilized land more grain with better pro- tein balance.

The 1974 test results showed triticale producing four tons per hectare to three tons for durum wheat which is used for spaghetti and other pastas, and tons for bread wheat. The scientists said the best variety of triticale produced tons per hec- tare under poor fertilizer conditions compared with three tons per hectare for the best variety of wheat. Large quantities of fer- tilizer can double wheat or triticale production. But the v.-orld is in the throes of a fertilizer crisis and the scientists said un-- derdeveioped countries of- ten can't afford soaring costs of petroleum-based fertilisers and just do without it. More protein. In poverty-stricken coun- tries where food is at a pre- mium, protein quality is also critical. Zillinsky said triticale has slightly more protein than wheat and "a better balance of proteins." He said the wheat-rye hybrid contains larger quantities of two amino acids essential to nutrition: lysine and tryp- tophan. "We think triticale is better than wheat or barley 4.

The scientists report triticale also seems more disease-resistant than observation borne out by scientists in several countries where the grain is undergoing tests. Triticale is not a new grain. The centre said scientific literature first reported a hybrid between wheat and rye in 1876 but it was sterile. It achieved fertility in 1968 when some triticaie plants accidentally crossed with some plants from an adjoining field of bread wheat at the international centre's headquarters. 524 23rd St. Sou'ih, Lsihbridge We'll show you how you can have a quality kiln dried Canadian Cedar Home that is fast, easy to assemble and save hundreds of dollars, too.
