It was the only Earth grain able to grow on Sherman's Planet, and in 2267, several tons of quadrotriticale were shipped to Deep Space Station K-7 bound for Sherman's Planet. This grain was poisoned by Klingon agents trying to undermine Federation colonization; this espionage was discovered when tribbles consumed the majority of the grain. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles"; DS9 novelization: Trials and Tribble-ations)
The grain was grown in large quantities in The Armada in the Maltese asteroid belt in 2365 when the crop was ruined by chroniton particles. Quadrotriticale was also used on The Armada to brew grain alcohol in a still made by a group of youngsters who lived there. (TNG comic: "Space Seeds")
A strain of desert-adapted quadrotriticale was supplied by the Federation to Obsidian in the 2290s. Although it yielded one good harvest, the second generation crops failed, supposedly due to faulty genetic coding. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge)
