Among the millets of the world, finger millet ranks fourth after pearl millet (Pert. nisetum americanum L.), foxtail millet (Setario italics), and proso millet (Panicum miliaceum). There are two regions of the world where finger millet is most intensively grown; immediately surrounding Lake Victoria in East Africa, the south-lastern parts of Karnataka and parts of Tamil Nadu and Andllra Pradesh in southern India. These regions account for nearly 75 per cent of the world's production of this cereal (Rachie, 1975).
