Overview

Comprehensive Description

Description

Annuals or perennials. Leaves flat or folded, sometimes plicate. Ligule usually a ciliate rim. Inflorescence usually a panicle, either open or dense and spike-like; the spikelets subtended by 1 or more bristles which persist on the axis after the spikelets fall. Spikelets oblong to ovate, ± plano-convex, awnless; glumes unequal, the lower generally much smaller, ovate from a clasping base; lower floret male or barren, as long as the spikelet, herbaceous; upper lemma crustaceous, strongly convex on the back, often rugose.

Setaria

Setaria is a genus of grasses in the Poaceae family. The name is derived from the Latin word seta, meaning "bristle" or "hair", which refers to the bristly spikelets.[2] The genus includes over 100 species distributed throughout the tropical and subtropical world,[3] and members are commonly known as foxtail or bristle grasses.[1] Several species are cultivated for food or as animal fodder, such as foxtail millet (S. italica) and korali (S. pumila), while others are agricultural weeds.[4] Setaria viridis is currently being developed as a genetic model system for bioenergy grasses.
