I know people talk about their sandy soils quite a bit. I ran across this article about using millet as an emergency forage an thought some of you may be interested.
After several years of serious winterkill to alfalfa, University of Wisconsin Extension specialists set up field trials to evaluate annual forage options, focusing on which worked better on sandy soils in the central part of the state. In a 2005-2007 study, they compared a wide range of annual crops, including 110-day corn, multi-tillering corn, oats, forage sorghum, sudangrass, a milo-soybean mix, soybeans, Italian ryegrass and three types of millet – Japanese, German and hybrid pearl.
