Dear All,
This could be some species of Digitaria, i am not sure about species but could be D. sanguinalis,
Manoj Chandran Sir would be best, who can tell more about the species.
Regards,

Sir,

Thank you very much for the probable ID of this grass. In one of my earlier post Manoj Sir elaborated on D. sanguinalis - https://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/qzk-tk371NY/discussion.

I think, not sure though, i can see the following features of Digitaria sanguinalis in my pictures - 
  1. stiffer raceme
  2. zig zag winged rachis
  3. larger upper glume
Regards,

surajit

Good evening Sir,

I was more curious to know the ID of this grass, for it was from my front-yard.

Thank you very much.

Regards,

surajit
