Pearl Millet (Tifleaf III) - Hybrid

    Description

    Hybrid pearl millet is a tall, erect, small grained grass with improved forage production.  It is relatively drought hardy and is adapted to a wide variety of soil types including sandy soils. Because pearl millet does not produce prussic acid, like sorghums, it is safer for livestock to graze. Hybrid pearl millet is longer season, produces more forage and regrows better than all of the other millets.
