    Anybody plant any of this blend. http://www.eagleseed.com/Waterfowlkeeper.html NWTF offered this in their seed program. I picked up a couple bags & seeded this past weekend. If my memory serves me it has about 19% Jap Millet, 19% Brown Top, 50% rice & 10% buckwheat.

    im not a huge fan of mixes. You have 2 plants that like water and 2 that dont. Prob gonna get some good millet out of it mostly.

    Agreed. To me it's a cover your arse planting but you might have good results. Mother Nature will determine that in all likelihood.

    Time will tell. Planted last weekend into dry soil. .9 inch rain yesterday with more predicted this weekend :pra Corn looking very good. Have about an acre of millet to plant in late July or August.

    Out of town back Wednesday go check out wetland. About 4 inches last 10 days. Should look really good. May need to lightly disc some areas sprayed if dead matter hindering release
