Millet may be recognized as the small, round, light-colored seed included in many wild bird seed mixes, but it is regularly consumed by people worldwide. Millets are known as “dry crops” because they thrive in parts of the world with short growing seasons and high temperatures and where low rainfall occurs. They are very important for crops in Africa and Asia, where they are indigenous and affordable to grow and produce. (Photo credit: Flickr/Steven Jackson, CC BY 2.0)
