About Barnyard or Japanese Millet

Barnyard or Japanese millet (Echinochloa frumentaceae L.), is a domesticated relative of barnyard grass. It is grown for grain in Australia, Japan and other Asian countries. It is a dual purpose millet suited to grain or grazing. Often cattle farmers in Queensland will plant Japanese millet for grazing and after a couple of feeds will let it go to head and harvest it. Shirohie is a larger, white seeded selection of the variety often grown in Northern Victoria around the Murray River. We prefer to use Jap millet because we find the green/grey colour is more attractive in the mixes. Shirohie is coloured white/grey and makes the mix look monotone.
