Navane or Foxtail millet is a gluten free grain and is the second most commonly grown species of millets. It is one of the oldest cultivated millet. Generally grown in semi-arid regions, it has a low water requirement and matures in 65-70 days. Foxtail millet can be planted when it is too late to plant most other crops. It forms a slender, erect, leafy stem varying in height from 1-5 ft. Seeds are borne in a spike-like, compressed panicle resembling yellow foxtail, green foxtail, or giant foxtail. The grains contain an outer husk, which needs to be removed in order to be used.
