Details

Our Golden Millet is a proprietary strain that performs well in a variety of conditions. Its short growing season to maturity makes it an excellent option because Golden Millet features a 60-70 day maturation time. What sets our millet apart from other quickly maturing food sources is the prolific production of food. Waterfowl hunters know that ample food for migrating waterfowl plays a large part in the success of their hunting season. Golden Millet can provide up to 3,000 lbs of forage for waterfowl at only $25 - $30 an acre, it can be a lower cost option than planting corn. 

Golden Millet needs to be planted at least 60 days before the first frost to ensure it reaches maturity. Planting times vary slightly depending on your location, but Midwestern states would plant between July 15th and August 15th. Southern states can continue planting into September. It can also be a backup plan if your property is too wet to plant corn earlier in the year and are in need of a fast-growing backup plan to still provide winter forage for your ducks. Golden Millet is a forage ducks will hammer in cold or warm temperatures and can even be broadcasted into a stand of Round-Up ready corn to provide a diverse source of food leading to happy ducks that stick around longer! 

Planting Rate: 

50 lb bag
20-25 lbs/acre when broadcast seeded
12-25 lbs/acre when drill seeded
Use 13-13-13 fertilizer to maximize the wildlife forage production of this millet. This fertilizer application rate can vary based upon the results of your soil test.

Planting Instructions:
  • Best in early spring and early fall when the weather is cooler and moisture is more reliable. Plant following the last winter frost through September 1 and allow 70 to 75 days from planting to maturity. Soil pH levels should be in the range of 5.5 -7.0.
  • Shallow planting (less than ½ inch) is necessary for stand establishment because of the small seed size and shallow rooting.
  • Broadcast seeding with a 4-wheeler tractor or airplane on a prepared seedbed and irrigating (flushing) adequate rainfall for germination is required for stand establishment.
  • A minimum rate of 100 lbs per acre (this amount may vary) of 13-13-13 fertilizer will help maximize the grain production. Fertilization rate can vary based upon the results of your soil test.
  • Supplemental irrigation may be necessary after the stand is established to provide moisture for the growth and development of the millet especially in later plantings. Golden Millet is a strong re-seeder second growing season if the waterfowl impoundment is drained slowly during the first 45 days of the growing season.
