    After going to my land last night and seeing at least 5 ft of water over my food plot, I have decide to mix the seed together and broadcast it once the water recedes. I figure that will allow me to "plant" at least one week earlier than if I wait for the soil to completely dry to a level I could get a disc on it. If only one type of seed germinates and matures, it is better than nothing.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    I wouldn't be surprised if your flooded millet springs back after the water goes down. But go ahead and top dress with the new bags. You should be good to go. You have sufficient time.

    JMHO: Don't mix the BW with the millet. Spread them in different pools. They don't do well together.

    By the way, the millet will do fine broadcasted on the mud. The BW likes dryer soil and should be lightly disked or dragged.
