Wildlife Habitat Seed Program

Twice each year, Wildlife Mississippi makes low-cost seed available to private landowners and public land managers for wildlife plantings. When planted properly, the seed will be utilized by a variety of wildlife. White-tailed deer, wild turkey, northern bobwhite, mourning dove, waterfowl and many species of songbirds will benefit from plantings.

Corn, soybean and grain sorghum seed will be available through Wildlife Habitat Seed Program. Winter wheat will be offered as well but only as pre-order in the Spring with pickup in the Fall. All seed has been treated and has excellent germination rates. A majority of the seed is provided by Pioneer.

Those ordering seed will be required to pick it up at distribution sites in Amory, Greenville, Hattiesburg or Madison.

In the event of a shortage of seed, the orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. On average, our spring seed distribution ranges from mid- to late April and our fall seed distribution occurs in late August. If you desire to plant earlier than this, this program may not be for you. We will contact you by phone and/or mail to ensure that you are aware of your pickup location, dates and times. This will be done after we have received all seed, typically two weeks prior to distribution. Failure to pick-up your seed order at the time of distribution will result in loss of payment and seed.
