Im hoping to plant one of our ponds next year. It is 1 acre wide by 5 acres long. Average depth is waist deep. I have no way of pumping water in and out, though it usually looses about 18" of water each summer.

What would you fellas plant, im thinking just duck weed since it floats around. Mainly planting for woodies, teal, gadwall and mallards. But mainly woodies

Always can look into wild rice aswell... thatís what Iíve been thinking about doing can be planted in water from 6-36 inches deep... itís hit or miss on the growth success rate but is not too expensive! Only reason keeping me from duck weed is it tends to take over the pond and is very hard for a dog to swim through

Not worried about it taking over as I have a ďrakeĒ to drag behind the boat and clear half of it every year. I donít hunt with a dog so thatís not a worry

If you can't control the water I would go with duckweed. I tried planting a number of different tubers and it did not go well. Either they didn't come up or the turtles got them. Water fluctuated heavily and most likely they didn't get the sunlight they needed. Best of luck.

It is hard to do without being able to manipulate water levels.
