White Proso Millet is a warm season summer annual bunch grass, rather attractive to doves and quail. It may produce large amounts of seeds with a yellow shiny coat in a short time frame. White Proso performs well in mixes for wildlife cover and grows from 3 to 6 ft. tall. It will mature in 75 days after emergence. Very popular for dove, quail, turkey and duck fields. Can be used as an emergency crop when other primary crops have failed in drought. Proso Millet will produce well during hot weather conditions. Planting should always be made early enough to mature seeds prior to the first frost and must be planted after danger of frost has passed.
