German Foxtail Millet

Excellent for hay, this summer annual is extremely drought tolerant and can be planted later in the season with expected good yields.


Quick growth reduces weed competition. On a given year, German Foxtail Millet can be harvested in 60 days. It is a one-time cutting that should be harvested when grain is in the milk stage. Often planted with Laredo Haybeans as a roughage. However, at harvest, the millet is usually overripe. Not recommended for horses.

Planting Conditions:

  • Plant May-July
  • Plan 20-30 lbs drilled, 30-40 lbs broadcast
  • Responds to nitrogen fertilization
