Grass growing wild seen last week (21.9.20)
Echinochloa colona– barnyard grass
Setaria verticillata for me
What is the height of the plant? Run your fingers from bottom to top of inflorescence – is the flow smooth or interrupted?
Thanks … I will have to wait till I visit Bangalore again and find this plant. Only then will I be able to give more details.
Ok. It is probably Setaria intermedia
