Eleusine coracana (Linn.) Gaertn.

(African or Finger Millet) is sometimes cultivated in the plains and lower hills (usually below 300m) and used to make a kind of porridge or alcoholic beverage. The species may occasionally escape and can be recognised by the broad spikes of closely packed, non-shattering spikelets and the almost globular grains.
