I do that with millet and rice but with our crazy weather rain may not happen like last year. I thinking of some thing that would grow in the pond like saga weed

I would plant wells rice everywhere in the pond up to 18" deep then I would put in some wild water celery plugs in the 2-3ft deep sections of the pond. This should cover a lot of ducks. Might try golden millet it takes flooding much better than standard millet strains

Habitat now.com its pricey but good food source deeper in your pond might try some buckwheat. Not much that can be done to guarantee food source when you have an extreme drought like last year. After that you ,might just bring in a couple truck loads of grit to line the edge of the pond sometimes a pond will load up with waterfowl just cause they have fine gravel shorelines

If water stays in parts all year. Plant banana water lily. There are a few impoundments around us that the ducks get in it good.
