German Foxtail Millet seed – Golden German Foxtail Millet is most commonly used for exotic bird feed, dove fields, livestock forage and food plots for deer, turkey, quail, dove and other wildlife.  Golden German Foxtail Millet is commonly referred to as "German Millet".

German or foxtail millet is an annual warm season grass that matures quickly in the hot summer months. It is one of the oldest of cultivated crops. Although German millet has a fairly low water requirement, it doesn't recover easily after a drought because of its shallow root system. Grain formation requires 75 to 90 days.

German millet forms slender, erect, and leafy stems that can vary in height from 2 to 5 ft. The seed can be planted from mid-May through August at a rate of 25 to 30 lbs per acre. A small seeded crop, German millet requires a relatively fine, firm seedbed for adequate germination. In order to avoid early competition from germinating weed seed, German millet should be sown in a stale seed bed or closely drilled in the row. Coarse sands should be avoided.
