Proso millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) belongs to one of the first cultivated plants. Although the crop is traditionally grown, especially in Asia and from European countries through to Russia, nowadays it has become a new alternative crop and a new raw material for food production in many developed countries. Also changes of climatic conditions can support the growth of this drought-resistant plant. Millet products have found use in diets of patients with celiac diseases because the protein…

Morphophysiological and molecular characterization of millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) varieties for crop improvement in Western Europe
Background: Global warming and issues in favour of a more sustainable agriculture suggest a reconsideration of minor cereals in European agrosystems. Compared to other summer crops, proso millet has
Phylogeography and Antioxidant Activity of Proso Millet (Panicum miliaceum L.)
TLDR
The results showed that genetic diversity and genetic distance were related to geographic location and the fixation index (Fst), and Turkey was suggested as a possible secondary center of origin and domestication for the proso millet cluster.
Beyond Bird Feed: Proso Millet for Human Health and Environment
TLDR
Proso millet certainly is a climate-smart, gluten-free, ancient, and small grain cereal, which is healthy to humans and the environment and requires successful collaboration among experts from diverse disciplines.

Evaluation of the waxy endosperm trait in proso millet (Panicum miliaceum).
TLDR
The entire USDA-ARS maintained collection of 650 accessions of proso millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) was evaluated for the presence of accessions with waxy (amylose-free) endosperm starch and the waxy trait was found to be under the control of duplicate recessive alleles at two loci.

Intercropping of soybean and proso millet for biomass production
TLDR
Results indicate that 1:1 ratio of soybean and proso millet in intercrop (S-M and SS-MM-SS combinations) is the most promising way to achieve high biomass yield.

Content and Quality of Protein in Proso Millet (Panicum miliaceum L.) Varieties
TLDR
The varieties Toldanskoe and Lipetskoe were the most different from the others in protein and amino acid content and Amino Acid Score of individual acids and had the lowest content and quality of protein.
Changes in the carbohydrates and nitrogenous components during germination of proso millet,Panicum miliaceum
TLDR
The percent protein in germinated grains was higher than in the initial grain as a result of dry matter loss during germination, and there was an increase in lysine, tryptophan and non-protein nitrogen contents during Germination.
Antinutrients content of some locally available legumes and cereals in Nigeria.
TLDR
The quantity of oxalate and tannin in acha, bambara groundnut, guinea corn, millet, sesame seed, soybean and tiger nut were chemically analyzed and it was found that among the cereals the black and brown varieties of millet have the highest oxalating contents.

TLDR
Animal studies with cattle, pigs, chickens, and rats have failed to show a superior nutritive value of sprouted grains over ungerminated grains, and studies with humans are not likely to produce more encouraging results.
Seed protein of millets: amino acid composition, proteinase inhibitors and in-vitro protein digestibility
TLDR
Six varieties of common millet, three varieties of finger millet and four varieties of foxtail millet were analyzed to determine the nitrogen constituents, amino acid composition, proteinase inhibitors and in-vitro protein digestibility (IVPD).
