Brown Top Millet

Has anyone planted this for a food plot for dove and pheasant? Drill or broadcast? Any herbicides or fertilizer? We are in Iowa and was thinking to use it in our rotation.
Thanks

I have not used Brown top millet but I have used other millets and birds love them. If you let them go to seed you will probably have it again the next year.

I recommend proso millet drilled, preferably with a no-till great plains drill at 12 to 15 lbs per acre on 7.5" rows. Fertilize with N, once mature I spray glyophosate and approximately 3 weeks later. Then use a prescribed fire and your ready to shoot some doves.
