Foxtail Millet

Setaria italica

Foxtail millet, grown for hay, offers producers flexibility in crop choice because of it’s low water use: 10 - 12 inches of precipitation to produce a crop. Golden German Millet stems are not as coarse as that of White Wonder. Mature plants exhibit considerable purple in leaf sheaths and leaves. Heads may reach six inches in length and are a definite golden brown in the mature plant. The rounded seeds are deep yellow in color, having an almost golden appearance. White Wonder is more drought tolerant than Golden German and very tall, but not as palatable.
