Proso millet grain can be used for human consumption, livestock feed, and bird seed – a common use in the United States. Millet is desirable for human food because it is easily digestible and gluten-free. It can be ground into flour, used to bake flatbreads, used to make tabbouleh, or for brewing beer.Proso millet is also called broomcorn millet or common millet. It is generally cultivated in the cooler regions of Asia, eastern Africa, southern Europe, and the United States. Proso millet has adapted well to temperate plains and high altitudes compared to other millets. The United States is the largest producer of proso millet and produced 250,000 tons during 2006 (USDA-NASS, 2006). The plant looks similar to the wild grass, Rottboelia cochinchinensis during the initial stages of growth. The panicles are denser than little millet and from a distance look like panicles of paddy.
