lesser grain borers.

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Fri Aug 19, 2016 8:17 pm

I modified a broadcast seeder made for an ATV to fit my ZTR, to use around my place, and have also used to to plant food plots for my neighbors. Today I was going to plant some wheat for a neighbor, and when I dumped it into the hopper it was full of small black bugs about 1/8 to 3/16 inch long that I think were lesser grain borers. It didn't look like there was a single good grain in the batch. Had it been mine I would have burned it or thrown it away, but he wanted to go ahead and broadcast it bugs and all. I figured it was a waste of time.
If you are not part of the solution,

Probably should have burnt the wheat to eliminate the bugs and eggs. Fumigate the area where the wheat was stored.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Agreed, but not my call to make.
