Unknown grass sp from Assam KD 01 May 2020 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)

Attached images are unknown grass sp. from Assam. Please ID the species. 
Date : 30.05.2020
Location: Assam

Family : Poaceae
Genus & species : ??
Habitat: Grows wild on road side
Habit :  Herb
 

Phalaris minor. The inflorescence characters are not visible due to pollen.


This doesn’t look like Phalaris minor. It must be Pearl Millet (Bajra).


Could be. Need to know the size of the plant and inflorescence to confirm. Phalaris minor inflorescence would be only a few cm long, whereas pearl millet would be much longer and stouter.

Identification required 8865: 3 images.
Location: Pampore srinagar j & K.

Sorghum bicolor I hope

Its Bajra/Pearl milletPennisetum americanum probably a fodder Bajra variety which has escaped from cultivation.
