Winter canola is an important crop in the Pacific Northwest, both as a biodiesel feedstock and a wheat-based crop rotation. Crop damage can be frustrating and costly, especially when you’re dealing with a new pest. Horned larks destroyed fields of canola seedlings in Washington State, and farmers and researchers are working to find a solution. This first report of horned lark damage to canola seedlings describes horned larks, the damage they caused, and measures taken in an attempt to control them.
