    Recommended Posts

    just looking at the picture on laptop and zoomed in 300/1

    I can tell you the bloke holding the grain needs to wash is hands😂

    I'm going to forward to my agronomist see what he comes up with.

    Never seen anything like it. It'd not a cereal seed, but a fruit of some sort. 

    If you zoom in you can clearly see the sepals at the top of the fruit.

    100% it is not wheat. I have to admit I don't know what it is, but I agree with whom ever it was that suggested they come from a tree or shrub/bush. If you look closely many have still got the fresh stalk attached whereas others have obviously been on the ground for a while, the stalk having lost it's sheen and colour and some have chitted and grown a shoot. They could even be weed seeds of some sort; but I know it is not wheat.

    Talking to the Farmer , it's Buck Wheat which has been planted as a cover crop to prevent " Black Grass"
