NO! Not the one that tills the land, but his enemy, the pink and grey galah (Kakatoe rosei-capilla).
Farmers have usually found the destruction of galahs damaging standing crops and bagged, or stored grain, fairly difficult.

Now, a quick and relatively simple method is available to farmers, using paraffin oil to adhere poison to the grain.
