Thank you

If you want good hay and silage production while getting higher yields than millet while also getting higher nutrition I would advise you to plant piper sudangrass as it is very drought tolerant will dry for hay easier and is more nutritious while growing just as fast as millet. Also I am not aware of how fast millet grows but in that time with sufficient moisture you could do that will sudangrass but only the piper variety as the sorghum crosses will not dry down as well.
