Browntop millet is a warm season, annual grass native to India. First introduced into the US in 1915, browntop quickly found its place in the Southeastern US. The Southeast is so fitting for this species because heat and moisture demands are adequately met. Expect a moderate height, fine stem/leaf plant with a yellow-brown panicle seed head. Seed out potential is very high because it can produce seed within just 60 days with very high shattering.
Why Millet Meal A Day ?
The millet grain contains about 65% carbohydrate, a high proportion of which is in the form of non-starchy polysaccharides and dietary fiber which help in prevention of constipation, lowering of blood cholesterol and slow release of glucose to the blood stream during digestion.
Lower incidence of cardiovascular diseases, duodenal ulcer and hyperglycemia (diabetes) are reported among regular millet consumers. Millet grains are also rich in important vitamins viz., Thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid and niacin.
