Overview

Browntop millet is a warm season grass that has an annual life cycle in northern states and perennial in southern states. Browntop is generally lower yielding compared to other forage grasses and for this reason, it is much better suited to wildlife food plot plantings. It produces seeds that are highly desired by pheasants, turkeys, ducks and other game birds and is very palatable to deer. Interestingly, Browntop is sometimes used as both a fast-growing cover crop for erosion control and as a heavy-metal sequester and catch crop in critical, contaminated soil areas. Browntop reaches a height of 2-3 feet and grows well in rich, moist soils. Browntop cannot tolerate freezing and will frost-kill very easily.
