Japanese Millet is a warm season annual grass and a heavy seed producer often used in food plots to attract a wide variety of wildlife including deer, ducks, quail, and dove. This millet variety is grown most commonly for ducks as it does well in areas that are wet and can be flooded as plants mature.
