New Mexico Department of Agriculture

The New Mexico Department of Agriculture has received reports of New Mexico residents who have been mailed unsolicited foreign seeds not clearly labeled as seeds. The seed shipments may be obscured as jewelry items.

If you are the recipient of one of these seed packets, the New Mexico Department of Agriculture is asking you not to plant them. If the seed has been planted, collect the seed prior to germination or destroy any emerging plants.

NMDA is working closely with the United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection, other federal agencies, and other State departments of agriculture to investigate the situation. For more information, visit https://www.nmda.nmsu.edu/2020/07/new-mexico-department-of-agriculture-warns-residents-not-to-plant-unsolicited-foreign-seeds/.

New Mexico Department of Agriculture warns residents not to plant unsolicited foreign seeds
Haga clic aquí para la versión en español.

LAS CRUCES – The New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA) has received reports of New Mexico residents who have been mailed unsolicited foreign seeds not clearly labeled as seeds. The seed shipments may be obscured as jewelry items.

If you are the recipient of one of these seed packets, the New Mexico Department of Agriculture is asking you not to plant them. If the seed has been planted, collect the seed prior to germination or destroy any emerging plants.

NMDA is working closely with the United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Protection, other federal agencies, and other State departments of agriculture to investigate the situation.

This type of international shipment of seeds is unlawful under state and federal regulations. The seeds are unknown and could be a pathway for introductions of new invasive plant species and new plant diseases to the state.

NMDA asks anyone who has received one of these unsolicited foreign shipments to save all shipping labels, packaging and seeds, and contact the New Mexico Department of Agriculture by email at [email protected] (photographs encouraged), or by phone at 575-646-3007. Do not plant seeds from unknown origins.

New Mexico residents are not in violation of any regulations if they have received these shipments, but they are the key to identifying and stopping future shipments.

Send seeds and associated shipping materials to NMDA by mail at the following address:

New Mexico Department of Agriculture
Laboratory Division
Attn: Tim Darden
MSC 3 LD / P.O. Box 30005

Elm Seed Bug: A New Nuisance Pest in Colorado Homes - 5.619 - Extension

Elm Seed Bugs were newly identified to the Albuquerque area in 2019, and this year have exploded in population. They are not harmful or damaging to plants, their populations can become a nuisance as they enjoy finding shelter in doors, windows, crevices, etc... Here is a report from CSU Extension on the insect. https://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/insects/elm-seed-bug-a-new-nuisance-pest-in-colorado-homes-5-619/

The best management of elm seed bugs is to seal cracks and crevices on the exterior of buildings so the insects cannot enter.

Good morning I am not a master gardener or agricultural person. However, I am wondering if you can help me identify the grass in these photos (my yard). The blades are cupped near the root and grow out flat. They are about 1/4 inch wide. The stems are round or tubular. The grass is somewhat clumpish. Areas of the grass seem dead while other areas are lish and green.
