Here is a pic of our 2007 watergrass crop. I think our efforts have been a success, lets hope the ducks agree.

im pretty big into growing natural vegetation as well as growing the right stuff for ducks(ie jap millet, buckwheat, smartweed, etc..) but i have never heard of watergrass... what is it??? do the ducks seem to like it?? under what conditions does it grow??

Watergrass is similar to Millet and grows in most rice fields. The ducks really love it. I likes lots of water but will still grow when water is short. With less water it only grows about 12" tall but still produces a good seed head. We flood it up in the fall and let the water stand.

Sorry about your drought, last winter was a little short for us as well, but we had enough in storage for this year.
