Millet, German Foxtail

1 Review | Write a Review
(Setaria italica) Sow in spring or early summer. Used as a cover crop, hay or pasture. Chickens adore the small white seeds. Grows from 2-5 feet tall. Very drought-tolerant crop that is believed to have been used in China for nearly 5000 years, and grown in the US since 1849.

What are the pros? compact,not picky with soil

What are the cons? yield is small if neglected


first tried to sow them straight into the ground in the bay area in heavy clay soil with limited access to water found that the drought tolerance of the plants is determined by its fast growth rate. under high heat and low water conditions even relatively small plants bolt if they at least have 4 leaves meaning there will always be at least some yield however yield triples with daily watering that I attempted the next year conclusion- consider it less drought tolerant than sorghum with the same behavior as sorghum under drought aka less yield and smaller size also takes high heat like a champ
