The complete chloroplast (cp) genomes of three Echinochloa crus-galli accessions (KR822684, KR822685, and KR822686) are reported in this work. The cp genome size is similar in three accessions, ranging from 139 846 bp to 139 860 bp. All three genomes have two inverted repeats (IR) of 22 748 bp per each IR with a large single copy (LSC) region of 81 833–81 844 bp and a small single copy (SSC) region of 12 517–12 520 bp. The total of 131 genes was identified in individual accession. Phylogenetic analysis revealed three Korean Echinochloa accessions belonged to E. crus-galli, and diverged less than 0.1 million years ago (Mya).
