Panicum repens (weed) L. - (torpedograss)

This grass is a rhizomatous weed, native to the Mediterranean region and to neighbouring countries. It has been introduced into various tropical and subtropical regions like the southern parts of North America. While it can be planted as a forage grass or for erosion control, it also grows in crops like sugarcane, reducing the yield and requiring control (e.g. see Hossain et al., 2001). Similarly, it often invades turfgrass stands and needs control (e.g. Brown et al., 2019).
