With extremely rapid growth, browntop millet can fill narrow growing windows to produce a nice quality forage. Under ideal conditions seed will germination within 5 days and forage or seed will be ready to harvest within two months time. Very fine stems and leaves allows plant material to dry down effectively for dry hay production. Browntop millet is an effective nurse crop, much like oats, in stabilizing erosive hill slopes and providing cover for slower growing target species to become established. Research has shown browntop helps to suppress root-knot nematode within the soil. This species is very inexpensive, providing a full stand for less than $15 an acre. With the ability to easily reseed and that seed to remain viable in the soil profile for years, makes browntop millet an excellent regenerating food plot for wildlife.
