Millets are small-grained, annual, warm-weather cereals belonging to the grass family. They are highly tolerant of drought and other extreme weather conditions and have a similar nutrient content to other major cereals.
Millets are grown all over the world, but specially in Africa and Asia with a major distinction in their use. They can be harvested as cereals for human and animal consumption, or can be used as a grass for livestock.
When used as food, they serve to produce beverages, soups, flour and all the preparations you can get with it. When used as feed, it´s one of the major ingredients in most seed mixes.
