milo

Asked April 30, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT

I live in the South Valley where I am able to flood irrigate. Last year I grew about three-quarters of an acre of corn for local wildlife. With the restriction on irrigation, I am thinking of trying milo. I plan on broadcast seeding. I think that we will be able to irrigate once every three weeks. In the fall I will knock it down a little at a time and let the cranes and geese eat it. Does this make sense?

That sounds like a very good plan. Milo requires less water and should do fine. Also it makes a good food crop for the above-mentioned wildlife.
