Hybrid Pearl Millet is an annual warm season, rapid growing, high-yielding and high-quality grass added to food plots for nutrients and variety. Pearl millet is leafy with an upright growth habit, will grow 4 to 8 feet tall. It can be grown on well-drained soils but does not perform well on calcareous soils that flood. Pearl millet is tolerant of drought and acidic soil conditions. Soil temperature must be warm before planting since seed germination and seedling growth are very sensitive to cool soil conditions. Can be broadcast, drilled, or planted in rows. Pearl millet can be grown on low-fertility soils that are moderately acidic. The recommended soil pH is 6.0.
