 FSG 300 PEARL MILLET (Pennisetum americanum)
  • Bushy type hybrid with high yield potential
  • Widely adapted to many diverse geographic regions
  • No Prussic Acid concerns

FSG 300 is a bushy type hybrid pearl millet with high yield potential which is achieved very quickly being only 63 days to the boot stage. FSG 300 has a high level of tolerance to many pathogens and high humidity, but cannot tolerate standing surface water. FSG 300 can be grown in as little as 16 inches of water; however, greater tonnage will be produced with greater water availability.

FSG 300’s bushy type plant stature means that the forage produced is virtually all leaves. This greater leaf mass gives FSG 300 high crude protein concentrations and high TDN values.

FSG 300 is usually planted between June 10 and July 10 in the Midwest when the soil temperature is at least 65º F.

Seeding Rate: 20-30 lbs./Acre
