As one of Oregon’s top 5 commodities, the fact that grass seed harvests are having an insect problem is a big deal.
Over the past few weeks, seed has been arriving at the cleaner with high incidences of contamination by an unknown caterpillar. Wheat processors also are affected.
Based on timing and just a few photos, I have a good guess about what this is. Looking forward to getting some samples ASAP!
