This leafy forage is similar to conventional sorghum/sudans, but with some key differences. Seed size is much smaller (75,000-90,000 seed/lb.) than sorghum/sudan thus seeding rates must decrease. Due to small seed size, a shallow seeding depth of 0.75 to 1.5” is recommended, which often limits establishment under dry conditions. Relative to sorghum/sudans (60-65 F) warm soils at planting are critical for success for hybrid pearl millet (65-70 F).
