The aim of the study was to identify factors that determined the regional production of triticale in Poland. The sources for regional diversification analysis of the triticale production were statistical GUS data from 2012-2014, accessed according to the province. The calculations were based on a three-year average. In a subjective way 20 factors that were characteristic for triticale production were chosen and were statistically analysed. Applying the multivariate analysis method allowed showing the regional diversification of triticale production in Poland and determining the factors that influence it. The cluster analysis method was used to isolate five groups of provinces, which differed in triticale production. Greatness triticale production in the regions was related to the intensification of animal production, structural and organizational factors. Triticale cultivation is concentrated mainly in Wielkopolska, Kujawy and in central and eastern parts of the country. The area structure in the western and northern parts of the country is more substantial than in eastern parts. Commercial cultivation and interest in the production of triticale are related to the size of the farm. The production of triticale cultivation in regions was associated with the foodstuff production for cattle of stock pig and poultry populations. The intensity of farming and the level of agricultural practises are connected with a size of the triticale yield.
