SEED MIXES FOR UPLAND BIRDS
We are happy to blend any custom mix FREE of charge.
Golden Millet has tall visible seed heads that hold their seed and remains standing while wild millet seed heads shatter under the straw which keeps the ducks coming back.
Plant 25 lbs per acre at 1/2" deep.
This mix works well in areas that won’t be flood irrigated. When flooded for hunting, the birds will feed on the standing proso first. As that is eaten, they will forage in the down straw for weeks, cleaning the Wild Millet. The Wild Millet will volunteer the following year.
Plant 25-35 lbs per acre at 1/2" deep.
These two grasses compliment each other—Proso low growing / Sudan tall. Flood for waterfowl or leave dry for Upland. Plant annually after last frost. Will grow west of Cascades with no irrigation.
Plant 25 lbs per acre at 1-1 1/2" deep.
This mix is a 50/50 blend of our two quickest maturing species, each reaching maturity in just 60 days. This makes it an excellent choice for higher elevation areas that have shorter growing seasons. This mix can be planted on average soil as long as good soil moisture is available.
Plant 100 lbs per acre at 1-1 1/2" deep.
