A group of small seeded grasses known as millets have evolved to thrive in conditions of poor soil fertility, little humidity, and high temperatures. The earliest cultivated crops included millets. Millets were a staple food for the Indus valley inhabitants since 3,000 BC, according to the evidence. More than 130 nations presently cultivate them. Nutritious cereals that fall under the millets category include sorghum, pearl millet, finger millet, foxtail millet, proso millet, kodo millet, barnyard millet, little millet, etc. As of 2021, India (41%), Niger (12%), and China (8%) are the top three millet-producing countries. India ranks twelve among countries with high millet yields.
