Japanese Millet is a high-performing forage option for livestock. It establishes quickly, making it economical, reducing the need for chemicals as it actively competes with weeds. Japanese Millet has a deep root system that has the environmental benefits of combating erosion as well as being drought tolerant. Active over the drier summer months, it is a good choice for milking cows or beef cattle. Additionally, it is also a superb supplement cultivar providing multiple cuts of silage per crop (generally up to 3 cuts). When sowing, it is important to note that the minimum soil temperature is around 17 degrees, with the ideal temperature being 20 degrees.
