Japanese Millet

    Description

    Japanese millet, known for its quick maturity, usually offers a lower forage yield compared to other millet varieties. However, it stands out for its superior post-maturity palatability when compared to foxtail millet and its impressive regrowth capabilities. Additionally, Japanese millet exhibits remarkable resilience to waterlogged soils, thriving even in standing water, making it a valuable choice for enhancing duck habitat and nourishment in food plots.
