This research was conducted to determine performances of 11 genotypes of foxtail millet originated from ICRISAT during the growing season of 2017 under Cukurova conditions.   Seeds of each genotypes of foxtail millet were sown in a 5 m row with a row spacing of 25 cm and 10 cm intra- rowspacing.  In the field experiment,agro-morphological and hay quality traits of the genotypes such as days to flowering, plant height, number of tillers per plant, number of leaves in the main stem, green herbage yield, hay yield, leaf ratio,  crude protein, ADF, NDF, P, Ca, Mg and K contents of dry matter were studied.  The mentioned properties for the genotypes of foxtail millet varied from 47 to 105 days,  from 92.8 to 176 cm, from 7.6 to 40.4 tillers, from 10 to 20.6 leaves, from 279.8 to 662.2 gr, from 84.6 to164.4 gr,  from 12.7 to 41.5 %,  from10.5 to 14.3 %,  from 38.8 to 49.8 %, from  74.9 to 85.6 %, from 0.363 to 0.434 %, from 0.109 to 0.407 %, from % 0.067 to 0.256 % and from 4.144 to 4.664 %, respectively.
