We have a small six acre flooded area in Tenn that is really not on any natural duck migration corridors. It is a draw down in late winter and plant in early summer an d then flood in november arrangement. I have planted every seed known to man (it seems)in the forty years we have had this place.(we built the dam and water control structures) and a spring creek originating on the property feeds the water source. This year we palnted corn for the first time and deer devastated it. Tradtionally our best crops have been hybrid mil0s and wgf. year before this I had a bad experience with chiwapa millet too. I talked at length with the biologist for the seed company prior to purchasing the seed (which is relatively expensive and very expensive to ship). Planted seed. Had decent moisture but got very little germination , or at least l couldnt tell what was just grass and what was chiwapa.. Like one stalk every two feet . In some areas l planted solid ten foot wide strips /rows of the chiwapa and then planted WGF in a ten foot strip and then other strips of milo. The chiwapa just didn't happen. I talked to the biologist as the summer progressed and sent him pictures of the plants, asking if this was the chiwapa, and he said he could not identify it in young stages from other grasses or millets or perhaps volunteer stuff....this went on until it was too late to tell what was what and too late to replant. it became obvious that the chiwapa crop had 90 per cent failed as fall rolled around. The biologist had no explanation, was nice to offer a discount on seed if we would try it again, but it was not worth the risk of losing a significant crop portion to me so we did not replant it. Those are the facts.
