Japanese Millet Seeds Forage crop ground cover - erosion control Bird Seed
Our packets are intended for small garden or starter forage areas.
This warm season annual grass is the fastest growing millet that grows leafy grass that grows 2-4 feet and produces a really nice quality forage as well as a bird seed. Seed Spikes are brown to purple. Ready to harvest within 45 days. Very fine stems and leaves allows plant material to dry down effectively for dry hay production. A very effective erosion crop, much like oats, stabilizes hilly slopes and provides cover for slower growing species to become established. An excellent regenerating food plot for wildlife. Plant from early spring to fall. Tolerates low fertile and acidic soils making this a good way to add organic matter to the soil. Great for quail, ducks and doves.
