    I had army worms do that to a two acre plot a couple of years ago. Completely wiped it out in less than a week. It went from beautiful to absolutely bare dirt. I sprayed it and replanted with marginal results. You could still throw some winter rye in there and do okay probably.

    It was probably seven or eight years ago I had the same thing happen to me. I had done a ton of work on a clover plot that year.

    I kept checking on it and one day it looked like it was being heavily browsed. I was kind of excited, thinking deer were stuffing themselves. Two days later there was nothing left but stems here and there. I looked closer and the ground was moving. Army worms.

    Triazicide put an end to their existence.

    From what I was able to find on the internet, they are worse in dry years.

    Soil temp time still remains for heavy winter cereal rye overseed to salvage it.

    We overseeded a few plots with rye about 2 weeks ago and it's coming up great.
