MILLET French White

Botanical Name: Panicum milaceum

Description:

Milet French White is a fast-growing, annual clumping grass with edible seeds. It tolerates soils of low fertility and is useful as a green manure to add bulk organic matter and to build soil structure. It combines well with mung bean or cowpen, which add nitrogen. It is commercially grown for birdseed and as a grain suitable for gluten-free diets.
