Proso Millet

Crop TypeWarm Season Grass
Seeds / Lb120,000
Minimum Germination Temperature42F

Proso Millet is ideal for short season growing or if feeding wildlife is desired. While this millet has good forage production, it doesn’t produce as much as the other millets (German, Pearl), but is cheaper overall if cost is a concern. Proso Millet is often taken for grain in other states, which makes it ideal for game birds and exotic birds such as finches.
