You should have planted it 3 weeks ago for ducks. But plant it asap, you should still be okay. Millet takes about 45 days to yield, planted at the right time, may-July for you area. It will mature and have best yield about 70-90 days.
You want 40lbs per acre. Medium to heavy soil. The soil should be wet to muddy. you want the seed to have about 1/8" cover for germination. It can grow in about 1-4" of water, but it may slow your germination. I would advise to flood (if going to) at about 75 days, or as soon as seeds start dropping. If your going to cut. When the seeds drop cut it, then flood if applicable. after 45 days when the plant is erect and 2 1/2-4' tall, you'll notice seeding. about 25 dys after wards seeds will drop. No fertilizer, lime etc, is usually necessary, as its a hardy plant from Africa.
