any seed, grain, can be sprouted.  just look up what they can eat and sprout it.  I am sprouting chickpeas and have done sunflower seeds, wheat berries, rye, bird seed like in the photo, wild bird feed, popcorn.  Only thing I can't sprout is oats and rice.  Rice is sproutable too supposedly but oats are not.  Barley is a clean grain.  I use hen scratch if it is clean enough or just wash it first.  So nuts, legume and grains including corn are sproutable.  Don't forget quinoa and it's cousins.  Broccoli sprouts I save for myself.  Try millet, mung beans, and brown lentils (whole only)  The world is your store.

Can I sprout this? If so, how?

Looks like wild bird seed so Yes.
