Generally, millets are described as annual, warm-weather cereal crops and small seed grasses. These grains are not necessarily that closely related, but all belong to the grass family, Poaceae. They are extremely variable in their length, inflorescence, and color depending on the variety grown.
Millets require warm temperatures for germination and development. They are highly tolerant of droughts and most extreme weather conditions, however they are sensitive to frost. Most millet species grow to maturity within 60 or 70 days, and some in even shorter periods depending on the climate. Overall, the crop is favored due to its productivity and short growing season.
Millets are indigenous to many parts of the world. They are some of the oldest cultivated crops around the world.
