Sorry, can’t see any image in any of the three crops (this one is blank, other -2 and -3 are ‘page not found). I can see pictures in earlier posts – looks a good trip! Pat
Oh dear, something went wrong with the image uploader 🙁 Image there now. It was a huge field of the stuff
Canary grass, Phalaris canariensis, grown for birdseed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canary_grass Good, high-value, crop for the farmer, rather small seeds but can be handled by a combine with settings for oilseed rape or linseed. Where was it growing?
Many thanks Pat it was taken on this walk we did with Cambridge Rambling Club https://www.strava.com/activities/349453929 at Rockells Farm, Duddenhoe End, http://www.rockellsfarm.co.uk/ next to a field of free range chickens and a fishing lake. Gorgeous day and scenery plus excellent to see all the cereals at different stages of ripening. I was surprised that none of the fields were flattened after the recent storms. I guess the crops have all been toughened up now 🙂
YES its canary seed grass.
