Dove Proso Millet Seed


Dove Proso Millet

Type: warm season annual grass
Uses: These plants can reach 4 to 6 feet tall producing an open seed head similar to oats. A unique characteristic is the seed will not mature uniformly. They will start to ripen from the top of the head down, dislodging and dropping to the ground as they mature. The seeds are very shiny, slick and resist mold and mildew making them an excellent plant for doves, quail and ducks. The seed will mature in about 75 to 100 days after emergence.

Planting Date: April - July
Rate: 40 lbs./acre or 1 lb./1000 sq.ft.
Depth: 1/2" maximum

Best for: Turkey, Duck, Dove, Pheasant and Quail

    Threw and grew

    First year trying a dove patch. Chose this seed because it's fairly low maintenance. Only was able to plant a small 1/2 acre plot due to lack of equipment (tiled with a 1970 something walk behind in an old pasture) I broadcasted roughly 10 pounds, used a garden to cover with lose dirt and made a couple passes back and forth with the truck. Low and behold some is head height while most is waist to sternum. Was going to burn but I believe I'll just wait and hopefully I'll get some quail out of it. Highly recommend
