Japanese Millet


Please call for more information

Japanese Millet is a warm season annual crop commonly grown for mid season grazing and forage production.   It is a crop similar to Sudangrass but without the prussic acid poisoning concerns for feeding to livestock.  Cattle find the forage palatable and it can be cut or grazed multiple times in the season.  The feed quality is good if harvested before the boot stage.  Japanese millet seed can also be harvested and saved for next season’s planting or for livestock feeding.  Poultry readily consume the seed without grinding.   Additionally the Japanese millet straw can be baled for bedding.
