Pearl Millet

Pearl Millet

As a warm season forage, Pearl Millet is fast-growing, high-yielding, and excellent for summer grazing/silage. It is highly palatable and does not produce Prussic Acid, making it safer for livestock and horses vs. other available options. Pearl Millet is drought tolerant, but under optimal weather conditions, Pearl Millet can be ready to graze in about a month. Many bird and wildlife species enjoy Pearl Millet as well.
