    I have had great luck with Golden Millet. Going thru older pictures it looks like our best success has been when there was heavy seeding and it out competes the weeds. IMAG4222.JPG IMAG4227.JPG IMAG4233_zps293a80b7.jpg

    Thanks for the reply. I’m running out of time for corn planting because of all the rain we are getting.

    Interesting going back thru old pictures and wish I would have done that before. Planted this year but late rains and the ducks go in and cleaned up much of my millet this year. Probably going to go back and spray and seed again. When it was planted heavy did well and out competed the weeds so real happy with results.

    It sure has been around for awhile, yet you don’t hear many hunters planting it. Can’t remember the cost/lb. but it seems it was pretty expensive compared to Jap millet. Like jap, golden millet is a variation of wild millet (echinocloa).

    Wonder why more don’t plant? Negatives?
