Proso millet is a short-season crop cultivated in drier regions of Asia, Africa, Europe, Australia, and North America. Also called common or broom corn millet is a relatively short-duration emergency or quick-season irrigated crop with low moisture requirements. It is a relatively low-demanding crop with no known diseases. Proso millet is well suited for many soil types and climate conditions. Proso millet is highly drought-resistant, which makes it of interest to regions with low water availability and longer periods without rain. Compared to all millets proso is a short season crop, reaching maturity in 60 to 75 days after planting. It is most frequently grown as a late seeded summer crop. Proso millet grows three to four feet tall. Its compact panicle droops at the top like an old broom, hence the name broom corn. Its round seeds are about 1/8 inch wide and covered by a smooth, glossy hull Seeds may be cream, yellow, orange-red, or brown in color. The grain after hulling makes a nutritious and palatable cereal for unleavened bread or cooked. This millet was grown in Russia, China, the Balkan countries and Northern India in historical times, being later replaced in most areas by rice and other cereals.
