Yellow millet belongs to the cereal family. It is used as a grain, and also for harvesting and has a fodder use. This type of millet is used for malt producing.
Yellow Millet Main Characteristics
Yellow millet grain has an oval, sometimes almost spherical shape. This grain size is small. Its length is about 2.0-2.5 mm, width —1.5-2.0 mm, thickness — 1.4-1.8 mm. The closer the ratio of length to width and to thickness is 1:1:1, that is, the more the shape of this grain looks like a ball, the better millet is for processing into cereals.
Yellow millet grain is covered with flower films that tightly fit the core, but do not fuse with it (except for a small area of the kernel — “scar”, which is located at the embryo).
Yellow millet films are rich in fiber, pentosans, minerals (up to 13-15%), including silicon salts, and contain almost no nutrients. All this makes this crop unsuitable even for forage purposes. The films removed from the grains (husk) are used mainly as fuel. The weight of flower films in millet grain varies widely — from 13-14% in millet of the best varieties to 22-23% in an ordinary millet.
