I believe the answer is:

requested

Here is my best explanation:

'asked' is the definition.

('request' can be a synonym of 'ask')

'search in grass' is the subsidiary indication.

'search' becomes 'quest' (quest is a kind of search**).

'in' is an insertion indicator.

'grass' becomes 'reed' (I've seen this in other clues).

'quest' going within 'reed' is 'requested'.

'as' is the link.
