Harvest & what the crop is used for
Harvest & yield:
We harvest with a combine, usually during late September or early October. We spray millet with a desiccant before harvest. We get about 2.2 tonnes per hectare.
Caring for the crop:
The crop goes into our grain store where it is dried and cooled. This prevents the build up of fungi and insects in the stored grain.
What it is used for:
Millet is used to feed wild or caged birds.
