Do any of you guys recomend any plants that you might have used in ponds or mud holes to attack ducks. Maybe even creeks, rivers or mud holes that dry up.

Millet, Sorgum, Smart Weed.

If you can Find it, Wild Rice.

I had a website 2 years ago, that sold Wild rice to plant. They got hit by a Hacker and their Site got Wiped out. I didn't save their Address or Phone Number, WISH I HAD!

Wild Rice is VERY EXPENSIVE to buy to plant!

I have a Feed Store near me, the owner did some Tracking Down of some places to buy Wild Rice Seed, Avarage was $300.00 for 25 pounds of seed!

If you can Find a place that holds major consentrations of Duck Weed, Skim it and put it in Plastic Bags and Transplant it!

I'm Sure there are many other seeds and plants you can get and plant, those are just a few I have delt with!

One of the food plot seeding companies actually markets a waterfowl mixture. I think it has wild rice,sorghum, a couple of others along with wild celery.

Bio-logic ,I think.

You could check your state Fish and Game Dept for info,in fact its probable best to get thier imput since you might find yourself stocking something illeagal.Most ponds have good and bad plants in them and the bad ones can be serious intruders.
Even if you are transplanting something good you could inadvertantly be taking along a non native hitch hiker mixed in.
Eurasian milfoil,African kabomba weed and a bunch of others only require a tiny piece of themselves to take over a whole pond.
Introducing plants to improve ponds for ducks is a great idea but it would backfire if the wrong plants got in.

Here is a website that sells rice. I purchased it for $10 a ten pound bag. www.penningtonseed.com This is a warm-season small grain rice. It works well in Alabama's warm climate. P.S. I have used the Bio-Logic brand and it is not a mix of diferent seeds. I found no millet seeds in it just rice. Very exspensive rice !!
