Abstract

Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), maize (Zea mays), pearl millet (pennisetum glaucum) and other millets are classified as coarse grain cereals, perhaps because of their hard grain texture. While sorghum and pearl millet are important staple food grains in Asia and Africa, they are used as the main component in feed formulations in other parts of the world. Grown generally in non-irrigated and rainfed lands, with very little agricultural inputs as compared to wheat (Triticum aestivum) and rice (Oryza sativa), they are important for food security in Asia and Africa
