The seeds of panicum miliare (English-little millet; Kannada-Save; Tamil-Samai, Telugu -Samalu; Hindustani-Shevan) are of some importance in certain regions of Madras, Hyderabad and Mysore States. It is a short duration crop which thrives even in areas of low rainfall and on poor soil. The yield of the grain is about 500 lb. per acre on an average but in good seasons it may go up to Soo lb. (5). The grain is usually husked and the husked grain is either cooked in the same way as rice or is ground and made into pudding or cakes. The chemical composition of a sample of little millet has been reported by Ranganathan, et al. (z). Apart from this the nutritive value of the grain has not so far been studied by animal feeding experiments. In the present note, studies on the nutritive value of little millet as compared with wheat are reported.
