Millet

Forage Use: Haylage

Description

This is a warm season annual, similar to sorghum sudans, with no prussic acid. Dry matter production 20 percent less than sorghum sudans, with better digestibility and protein.

Management

Millet has smaller seeds, thus a lower seeding rate. It needs a soil temperature of 65 degrees or more to germinate, and growth slows down when cool weather comes (September). Frost kills it but it can still be grazed with no fear of prussic acid. Will tolerate wetter years better than Sudan.
