Makes an excellent food plot for ducks as the
seeds of Japanese Millet are eaten by almost all puddle ducks and geese.
Can be planted late summer early fall, as long as you have 70 to 90 days of
frost free growing weather.
Jap millet is similar to Wild Millet, Barnyard Grass and Walter's Millet.
It's considered an excellent food plot for ducks. Grows 2 to 5 feet
high which makes it great to throw out in front
of duck blinds or river bottoms that dry up in the summer months.
Works great for flood control projects. Where you can control
your water levels, it can be planted as late as early August. At Kester's we pump all the
water off our property and drain it down to mud then we plant Japanese Millet and
flood it in the fall right before duck season opens.
Grows in water depths from
mud flats to 4 inches. Plant 25 to 40lbs to the acre. Japanese Millet
is an annual and must be planted ever year.
