General information

Proso millet

An update of the global conservation strategy for the conservation and use of genetic resources of selected millets was developed and published in 2022 as part of a 3-year project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture. The strategy includes a summary of ex situ holdings, their vulnerabilities and gaps in the collections. It also includes considerations on distribution, documentation of the collections and in situ and on farm management of millets and its wild relatives. Finally, it outlines priority actions to improve the conservation of the plant genetic resources of these crops.
