CFPM-101 Canadian Forage Pearl Millet 101

CHARACTERISTICS

SPECS

Canadian Forage Pearl Millet 101 is a high yielding, high protein annual crop of tropical origin. It is drought resistant and allows multi-cuts. The plant grows with a mass of very fine fibrous roots and huge top growth with several tillers. Pearl millet prefers light sandy to loamy soils and if allowed to grow without cutting it can reach heights of over 12 feet. It can be used as a cover crop for soil improvement. The plant is frost sensitive, thus produces no volunteer plants in the following season. There are no toxic components in forage pearl millet (prussic acid or oxalic acid). About 1.5 million acres of pearl millet forage are grown in the US annually. Until recently, there were no varieties of pearl millet suitable for growing in Ontario and Quebec. AERC Inc. has developed a temperate cultivar of forage pearl millet that can be grown in Canada. Forage pearl millet has an excellent feeding quality and farmers have reported that livestock preferred pearl millet to alfalfa-grass silage or pasture.

AERC has selected Canadian Forage Pearl Millet 101 from the breeding program for its ability to produce high yields over a relatively short growing season. It has been tested widely across Canada for several years.
