It has been proven, that thanks to its potential to adapt to variety of environments, triticale performs well over a wide range of soils and stress conditions, both biotic and abiotic.
The strengths of triticale include the following: management similar to other small grains, cold tolerance, vigorous growth, and resistance to many abiotic stresses. The vigorous root system and tolerance to abiotic stresses, arising from rye (Niedziela et al. 2014), allow it to grow on light sandy soils with low fertility, indeed, under dry and marginal conditions the advantage of triticale over wheat is getting enlarged. Triticale in general has superior drought resistance compared to barley, wheat, and oat. Furthermore, triticale copes well with light acidic soils, soil salinity, and toxic aluminum ions. Of all the cereals available to farmers, triticale has the best adaptation to water-logged soils and those of high pH (alkaline soils). Triticale is also tolerant of low pH (acidic soils), grows well on sodic soils, and tolerates soils high in boron. On the other hand, humid weather conditions near harvest ripeness often cause pre-harvest sprouting problems in triticale (Arseniuk).
