    Rabbit tolerant crops

    Apart from Beans, are there any other crops that bunnies won't touch? Is Triticale resistant?

    They are not so keen on Oats but will still have a go.

    I thought being unpalatable to rabbits was the only reason anybody grows triticale. Even then, a lot don't grow it twice.

    Didn't there used to be a wheat variety they liked less or not at all? Was it called Buster?

    15km in last 5 years. Could easily do the same again. Quite often see them leap over the top of 1m high taught wire without touching the top. Plenty of myxomatosis at moment.

    Oats are the way to go-if they are starving they will nibble a bit but normally nothing to worry about.Thats one of the pluses of oats along with no slug problems either before or after.Never had to use a slug pellet on oats.

    We grow continuous spring barley on a couple of fields that cannot be shot / gassed or fenced for many reasons. They will still have a go at the barley but it is only there for such a short time that the damage is negligible compared to grazing wheat all autumn winter and spring.

    Rabbits don't like winter linseed. We also found that with Colossus, 6 row barley they nibbled a bit but the plant seemed to grow away.
