SPECS

Pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum ) has been used in the southeastern United States as a summer grazing and hay crop for over 50 years. Pearl millet was introduced by AERC Inc. into Canada in 1994 for use as a forage crop and control of root lesion nematodes. AERC Inc. has recently  developed adapted and productive grain pearl millet hybrids for southwestern Ontario giving crop producers a suitable alternative feed grain to corn. AERC Inc. conducts its research on hybrid development, agronomic recommendations and feed potential.
