So I planted teff grass 2 days ago with a 1560 deere no till drill.  I was in the area and decided to check the corn that was nearby.   To my supprise here is the teff grass ALREADY UP and out of the ground.

Is this normal for teff grass to be quick?

What is teff grass? A protein feed or tonnage, fiber?

I have never planted teff before but i have researched and it says its fast to germinate but less than 2 days is crazy fast in my opinion.  Teff is suppose to be great feed similar to timothy.  Very leafy higher in protein 12-18 percent they say.  Should get 2 cuttings or maybe three if planted earlier. Only a one year crop though
