    The problem with the jap falling over is why we developed a different variety that will stand up longer and put on a bigger head. It also matures at 60 days.

    The millet is called GG 102 or Golden Grass. Most fsa offices should be able to get it. call me at 870-830-6623 or 5oakswildlifeservices.com

    1.25/lb you probably noticed the rates on the website. IF you like that brown top you will love this stuff.

    The golden grass is awsome!! I have a small farm in Arkansas and was turned on the Golden grass a couple of years ago. The heads of seed were almost twice the size of the other millet we planted. And it doesn't fall over as easy.seems to have thicker stems.

    That is 150% more in price but if its as good as it sounds then it deff. might be worth a try, atleast in one of my ponds.

    Thanks for the positive input. I am working on the possiblity of having smaller samples avaliable. I am like some of you guys I want to see how it works on my place before I purchase a 50lb bag. I am thinking of 15 lbs bags. I have gotten an email about a 5 lb bag, but I think that is awful small to get a good sample. What would yall be interested in?

    I think there would probably be a market for a 15-20lb bag. Alot of these guys just use millet to spice up the back of a cove or a small swamp. So I think you would be able to sell some 20lb bags.

    I agree, i would like to try an area of it before I invested in 150lbs
