Millet is an important forage plant in semi-arid growing areas. A member of the grass family, the plants grow quickly in warm weather and are among the most efficient crops in terms of water use. Broadcast sow at a rate of 25-30 pounds per acre or drill seed at 15-20 per acre, at a depth of 1/4-1/2 inch. The annual plants grow 2-5 feet high and bear a heavy harvest of long, thick, ears. Foxtail millet is small-seeded, and needs a fine, firm seedbed. Despite its thrifty water use, millet does not recover well from extreme drought, due to its shallow root system.
