Browntop milletA summer annual with relatively wide leaves and open panicles. Browntop millet may grow erect or prostrate along the ground with tips ascending. This grass is primarily a weed of agronomic crops, hay fields, and abandoned fields. Leaf blades may reach 7 inches in length and 15 mm in width and are without hairs on both surfaces. However, minute hairs that are rarely visible to the naked eye may occur on the upper leaf surfaces near the leaf bases. Leaves are without auricles and have a ligule that is a fringe of hairs approximately 1/2 to 1-1/2 mm long. Seedheads are an open panicle, 1-1/2 to 7 inches long, 3/4 to 2-1/2 inches wide.
