German Millet (Golden)

    Description

    German millet is a warm season grass that can be planted earlier than sorghum sudan or pearl millet. Though it is not as productive as the aforementioned grasses, german millet makes a cost effective hay crop, ready for cutting about 55-60 days after planting. It does not have good regrowth which lends itself well to establishing the next crop without lingering competition after haying occurs.
