SEED MIXES FOR waterfowl

We are happy to blend any custom mix FREE of charge.

This is a mix of grasses and forbs that produce an abundance of feed. They are either perennials or readily reseeding annuals. Using the moist soil management techniques, you can draw your water down at the best time to stimulate growth. All of the species in this mix perform well with each other and will produce lots of waterfowl attracting feed.

Moist Soil Management Mix #4

$14.95 /lb

These are both perennials. They both produce lots of seed. The manna, when mature, will be the first long green grass floating on the water in late December. These are some of the only grasses, that once established, can thrive under water for the winter. Both produce great natural habitat for the invertebrates that the ducks love in addition to seed.

Mix # 6

$11.50 /lb

They have a short growing season of 8 to 10 weeks. Plant dryland then flood when ripe or plant adjacent to hunting ponds.

Mix # 7

$1.35 /lb

50%   POCO BARLEY

50%   BUCKWHEAT

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.

Mix #8

$2.95 /lb

This mix is an excellent blend of two waterfowl favorites that are easy to get established in seasonally flooded areas and provide such an abundance of seed that they readily reseed themselves year after year.  These two species compliment each other nicely as the Wild Millet grows tall, up to 6’, the low growing Swamp Timothy fills in the understory creating a layering of feed that keeps the birds coming back.

Mix # 9

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.

Mix #12

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.

Mix #13

$1.45 /lb

This mix is ideal for shallows up to 12" deep in marshes, swamps, streams and ponds.  Each one of these native perennial species will sprout under and grow up through the water.  These plants provide great habitat and the waterfowl devour the seed heads, foliage and tubers.
