Fast growing, drought resistant annual grass with slim, vertical, leafy stems that may grow 4-6 feet tall.  Makes rich hay and can produce 1-2 tons of forage per acre for hay. Not recommended for horses. Good for wildlife. Used many times as a summer cover crop or nurse crop for other grasses. Sometimes called the summer annual ryegrass. 

Grows very quickly with germination in 2 days or less and is used in cover crops and nurse crop applications.  Because it is so fast to germinate seeding rate should remain light.  It does not require much water but once stressed the shallow roots creates difficulty to recover.   

Grain production is used as bird feed and should not be feed to horses.  Golden German Foxtail Millet is what we are describing but the Foxtail Millet family is very large and contains many types. Originated in Asia and is still used as a grain.
