Breeding of wheat-rye hybrids was first reported in 1891 by the German plant breeder W. Rimpau. His octoploid "Triticale Rimpau" is still cultivated in Germany in numerous locations in experimental plots, although at present triticale research in the German Democratic Republic is not considerable. In Czechoslovakia, intensive research work on triticales has been done since 1970 at various research institutes. Trials have begun in Poland with octoploid triticales and recently with hexaploid hybrids. The Institute of Plant Breeding at Lublin is the coordinating centre of the work. Extensive research as well as comparison trials are being carried out at other locations. Bulgaria also began its testing with octoploid triticales and since 1970 has studied hexaploid triticales; it is also engaged in breeding research. In Rumania, foreign varieties from Canada, Mexico, the USA, and Hungary are being crossed. Amylase activity is being studied in Bucuresti and crossing trials are being carried out at Fundulea and Cluj.
