BROWN TOP MILLET Panicum ramosum
Originated in South East Asia.  Brown Top is an annual growing 2-5 feet tall.  Used for hay production, wildlife applications and as a summer grazing crop.  It is also used in Southern locations as a "nurse crop" for erosion control during the establishment phase of slower growing perennial grasses (along highway banks / turf slope areas.)  Its abundance of seed production makes it very attractive to dove and quail.  When planted with corn or alone and then flooded after it matures in the fall, it is one of the best choices in a food supply for wild ducks available.  Less productive than Sudangrass, hybrid millets and cattail, but is firmer stemmed and less rank in growth.  Will usually volunteer or reseed itself easily on fields flooded in fall for duck hunting.

  • DATE: Late spring, after danger of frost through summer
