Finger Millet Seed

INTRODUCTION
Finger millet is indigenous to Africa and well adapted to Zambian conditions. It is widely grown as a subsistence crop in the higher rainfall areas of Northern and Luapula Provinces where its grain, whose nutritional value is high, is used as an important staple food and generally consumed as porridge made from flour blended with cassava. The grain is also frequently used to make local beer. It is regarded as a strategic traditional food security crop on account of good storability. It has also fair potential both as a cash and industrial crop.
