Brown Top Millet
BROWN TOP MILLET is a warm season annual grass that originated from South East Asia and is used in the southern United States. It is used for forage, hay, and pastures and interceded with other grasses for erosion control along highways and reclamation sights. Millet seed is an excellent food source for birds and the forage provides excellent cover for dove and quail.
Brown Top millet has proven to be extremely palatable and desired by wild hogs. Outfitters who provide wild boar hunts should definitely consider this for their food plots.
Brown top millet is usually planted in early spring and grows rapidly. Its quick germination and fast growth provide early grazing. These same traits make it an ideal plant for soil stabilization. Millet is adapted to well drained soils and can be grown in soils of low fertility.
