Wild Proso Millet
Annual grass (warm-season)

Full sun, moist to dry conditions, adapts well to many soil types
DAYS TO MATURITY:
Plant 20 lbs per acre
This wild variety of proso millet grows very much like its domesticated relative, white proso millet, but has the distinct ability to reseed itself each year. It will grow well in field applications that can be left dry for upland bird food/cover or grown in seasonally dry ponds that will be flooded for fall and winter to provide amazing feed for waterfowl. Matures in 60 to 90 days.
