Pearl millet is an ancient crop that was domesticated 3,000 to 5,000 years ago in the grasslands of Africa, near the southern edge of the Sahara. By 2300 BC, pearl millet was found in Asia and is now a staple cereal crop in India. Researchers believe that the widespread development of millet farming was prompted by the rain deficiency in the Sahara Desert.
