The Common Millet (Panicum miliaceum) flowers in large, open, nodding panicles. The leaves are lance-shaped and broad. The stem grows from one to two feet high. The seed is rich in nutritive qualities. Millet requires good soil, and is rather an exhausting crop, but yeilds a produce valuable in proortion to richness of the soil, and care and expense of cultivation.

Couch Grass (Triticum repens) is also referred to as Quitch Grass, Twitch Grass, Dog Grass, and Chandler Grass. Couch Grass has extensively creeping roots. A smooth, erect, round stem growing from one to two and a half feet high having five or six flat leaves with smooth, striated sheaths. The joints are smooth, the two uppermost are very remote. The leaves are dark green an acute. The upper ones are broader than the lower ones, rougher, sometimes hairy on the inner surface, smooth on the lower half. Inflorescence in spikes and flowers in June and July.

Hungarian Grass (Panicum Germanicum) is an annual forage plant. It germinates readily, withstands the drought remarkably, remaining green even when other vegetation is parched up. If its development is arrested by dry weather, the east rain will restore it to vigor. It has numerous succulent leaves, which furnish an abundance of green fodder. Hungarian Grass flourishes in somewhat light and dry soils, though it attains its greatest luxuriance in soils of medium consistency and well-mannered. This grass is thought to contain a somewhat higher percentage of nutriment than the common millet. It is a leafy plant and remains green until the seeds mature.

Italian Rye Grass (Lolium Italicum) differs from the Perennial Rye Grass in the florets having long, slender awns and from bear darnel in the glumes being shorter than the spikelet. The Italian Rye Grass turfts less than the Perennial Rye and the stems grow higher. The Italian Rye's leaves area light green and it gives an early, quick, successive growth until late in the fall. The soils best adapted to the Italian Rye seem to be moist, fertile, and tenacious.
