darnel dar"nel (d[a^]r"n[e^]l), n. [OE. darnel, dernel, of uncertain origin; cf. dial. F. darnelle, Sw. d[*a]r-repe; perh. named from a supposed intoxicating quality of the plant, and akin to Sw. d[*a]ra to infatuate, OD. door foolish, G. thor fool, and Ee. dizzy.] (Bot.) Any grass of the genus {Lolium}, esp. the {Lolium temulentum} (bearded darnel), the grains of which have been reputed poisonous. Other species, as {Lolium perenne} (rye grass or ray grass), and its variety {Lolium Italicum} (Italian rye grass), are highly esteemed for pasture and for making hay. [1913 Webster]

Note: Under darnel our early herbalists comprehended all kinds of cornfield weeds. --Dr. Prior. [1913 Webster]
