Illinois Wheat Crop

Abstract:The Hessian Fly, an insect that infests practically all of the large wheat-growing areas of the world, was first found in North America on Long Island in 1779 and was probably brought into this country in the straw used by the Hessian Troops sent here during the Revolutionary War. It was first recorded in Illinois in 1844, according to Webster, and it has been a factor in wheat production in this State ever since that time.
