 Dear All,
Apart from ID if can someone on the group tell us about the paletibility of this grass??
It has grown so tall and seeding shows that animals dont like to feed on this??
I am sure that the same Grass must be growing in Satpura, so how is the situation there?
Thanks for your help in advance.
Satyendra

This is a sedge, not a grass.
Cyperus sp. may be (Cyperaceae)

Dear Satyendra,
your plant looks like Cyperus esculentus
locally called Nagar Motha
It generally grows in riparian areas especially in river beds,
thanks

Sir,

I am attaching two photos, recorded on 15/8/13 in a low land, a tall cyperus what i think as C. digitatus R. There is a special note in Flora Indica, about "6 ft." tall and a variety in Flora of British India.

Thank you,

Regards,
surajit

Sir,

I would like to add that the culm of cyperus very obtusely three sided, almost rounded.

Thank you,

Regards.
