Red Millet (Panicum miliaceum)

Ref: RMILLET

Red millet has very similar attributes to its relative, white millet. Millet is seldom sown on its own, however sown with maize or kale, results can be excellent. One method is to plant maize in the usual wide rows and then to drill or broadcast millet in blocks at right angles to the maize. This will ensure a steady release of birds. Sow during April and May.

Red millet is a warm season, cultivated grass species. It has been grown for centuries for it seed, as a forage and human consumption.
