Brown Top Millet is a warm season annual millet that’s attractive to a broad range of wildlife. It is popularly used in food plots for doves, quail, ducks and deer. It is one of a few varieties that does well in dry, well-drained soil and can also be flooded for waterfowl. This millet matures quickly in 60-70 days and is a heavy seed producer. Brown Top Millet does well in a wide range of soils with a PH of 5.5-7 and will grow to a height of 2-4 feet. It does well as a pure stand field crop or as a companion to other grasses. Stagger plantings to make sure an abundance of seed is available throughout summer and fall.


Soil Types:  Wide variety, well-drained

Seeding Rate:  30-40 lbs. per acre

Planting Date: May - Aug.

Planting Depth: 1/4" to 1/2"

    Brown Top Millet

    Posted by Jerry Stein on Nov 8th 2021

    We were in an extended drought this summer in North Dakota. The forecast was for a hot dry summer. So I bought several varieties of food plot seed. The Brown Top Millet preformed exceptionally well and has produced the best pheasant cover.
