Organic Japanese Millet

EXCELLENT FEED VALUE

  • Upright, annual grass with quick growth in adequate moisture and fertility
  • Finer stems than pearl millet or sorghums
  • When cut before heading, protein  ranges from 14-20%
  • Customers report high palatability

Best Use: Hay, pasture, and silage. Excellent feed for cattle, horses, and sheep. No prussic acid problems.

Adaptation: Tolerant of wet soils and will survive standing water, but does not perform well on droughty or low fertility soils. Not frost-tolerant.

Management: Can be cut 2 or 3 times. Cut before heading and leave 6”of stubble for faster recovery. In a single-cut system, it can reach 5’ tall. Earlier cutting leads to higher quality, lower yields, and more drying time.

Planting Date: Mid-May to early June (soil 62°F+)

Seeding: Seed 25-35 lbs/acre ½”-1”deep
