Dactyloctenium aegyptium

The stem has a spreading, creeping and mat-forming structure. It roots at the lower nodes. The flower head has 2-7 spikelets borne at the tip of the stem. The seed head looks like a crow's foot, hence the name. Each plant may produce up to 60,000 seeds.
Effect and impact: The weed reduces yields as it competes in the nutrient uptake, moisture, and light during the growing season. It also interferes in the harvesting operation.
