Help with Grass ID

stevein(5)June 20, 2005


I took a few pictures on a walk through my neighboring farmland. Can anyone help me to ID these grasses? All pictures are from June 19th and taken in Indiana.

You might try on the 'ornamental grasses' forum or on the 'Name the Plant' forum. Nancy - (Grasses are a whole new world for me.)

My best guesses are:
Pic #1 Timothy
#2 Tall fescue
#3 Annual ryegrass(could be perennial ryegrass, I suppose)

I know I'm correct on #3, and am fairly sure about #2, less so about #1
