Wild Rice




             Wild Rice is easily grown in mudflats, marshy areas or along shorelines and it provides a supplemental food source for migratory water fowl such as geese and ducks like the wood duck or black duck. It requires clean still water to grow and must be kept moist. Small areas on mudflats and along shore lines that flood frequently or slowly drained sites with clay subsoil are all places that are good choices to plant wild rice.  Reliable attractants can be developed by using small-scale plots on exposed mud flats where water levels can be controlled and flooded from 12 to 36 inches of water for the hunting season. Seed can also be broadcasted directly into water ranging from 2 to 4 inches deep which is perfect for planting on the shallow edges of existing ponds.
