Rye (Secale cereale) is a grass grown extensively as a grain and forage crop. It is a member of the wheat tribe (Triticeae) and is closely related to barley and wheat. Rye grain is used for flour, rye bread, rye beer, some whiskies, some vodkas, and animal fodder. It can also be eaten whole, either as boiled rye berries, or by being rolled, similar to rolled oats. Rye should not be confused with Ryegrass which is used for lawns, pasture, and hay for livestock. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

This distantly related genus, Elymus, contains species known as Wild Ryes, which are used as cover and for forage. A Wheat hybrid is known as Giant Rye.
