Habitat Seed Program

Need Seed For Your Food Plots?

Whether you are a photographer, hunter or like viewing wildlife, anyone who has spent time overlooking a food plot will have a deep appreciation for wildlife plantings.

Seed

Food plots are very attractive to wildlife because they can supplement their daily nutritional needs at a low cost. These plots can be designed to serve as a source of food and cover. Well-managed food plots have the potential to increase wildlife, quality of health and observability.

To aid landowners who would like to plant wildlife food plots, Wildlife Mississippi is continuing its Wildlife Habitat Seed Program. Through this program, Wildlife Mississippi will make seed available at a minimal cost.

The Wildlife Habitat Seed Program is designed to provide an incentive for landowners to establish and maintain food plots that will yield a variety of benefits to the landowner as well as the species of wildlife he or she is managing.

LandCorn, soybean and grain sorghum seed will be available through Wildlife Mississippi's 2014 Wildlife Habitat Seed Program. Pre-orders are also be taken on the winter wheat that will be distributed in the fall. All seed has been treated and has excellent germination rates. The seed is provided by Pioneer Hi-bred International and is distributed through Resource Management to the Foundation.

Quail HuntersIf planted properly, the various types of seed will be utilized by a variety of wildlife species. White-tailed deer, turkeys, bobwhite quail, mourning doves, waterfowl and many species of songbirds will benefit from these plantings.

The guidelines regarding this program are simple and easy to follow. Anyone interested in obtaining seed should send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Wildlife Mississippi with a request for an order form and planting recommendations for the seed. Wildlife Mississippi will be taking orders up until March 7, 2014. This will allow the staff to place the orders in a timely manner to ensure that they will be filled in time for planting season.
