Common names are from state and federal lists. Veerabhadrappa et al. The degree to which particles are reduced and starch granules are damaged during milling is dependent on millet grain type, drying conditions, and milling force. The starch granules are large and polygonal, but some small polygonal types can be found (Kumari and Thayumanavan, 1998). The grasshopper A. exaltata causes defoliation. These crops have larger variation for yield and its component traits including stress tolerance related characters. Kodo millet scientifically knows as Paspalum scrobiculatum, is an annual grain that is grown in primarily in India, but also in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and in West Africa where it originates. Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Kodo millet, subfamily Panicoideae, tribe Paniceae, is tetraplod (2n = 4x = 40) with a genome size of ca. It is rich in glutamic acid (mainly glutamine), alanine, leucine, and serine, but deficient in lysine. Sometimes feeding by the gall midge Orseolia spp. Kodo millet (Paspalum scorbiculatum L.) is also known as ditch millet. Let us first understand a key difference between cereals and millets. The seed coat and aleurone layer contribute a significant amount of phytic acid, polyphenols, and dietary fiber and impart a chewy texture, but also contribute a dark color and somewhat musty odor to the final bread. As with other millets, the proximate nutrient composition of kodo millet is not unusual (Table 6.3). It has the potential to be grown as a food source on hillside farms. (2011) and identified important gene sources including trait-specific germplasm in these crops. Millets are small-seeded and are of different varieties, such as: They are known as coarse cereals besides maize (Zea mays), sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), oats (Avenasativa), and barley (Hordeum vulgare) (Bouis, 2000; Kaur et al., 2014). In traditional processing, decortication is conducted by gentle pounding with a wooden mortar and pestle. If pearl millet is milled into whole flour, because of its high fat content (about 5%), rancidity can occur from the lipase activity in the germ, aleurone layer, and pericarp; thus often it must be quickly processed into bread after milling (Saleh et al., 2013). Pearl millet is reported to have amylase inhibitor, which is more in the debranned sample (Sharma and Kapoor, 1996). To make bread, the flour is mixed with water, salt, and other optional ingredients (oils, spices, onions, dates, eggs, milk, nuts, sesame seeds, and/or black cumin [Nigella sativa]) and baked on a griddle or iron pan. It has been noted that … Proso and kodo millets have not showed any detectable inhibition, whereas finger millet showed both antitryptic and antichymotryptic activity. In the caryopsis-type structures (pearl millet, sorghum, maize, wheat, and barley), the pericarp is adhered to the seed coat and decortication can be undertaken to remove the pericarp layer. Value addition can be done by mechanical technologies, such as decortications, milling and sieving, baking, extrusion, fortification, etc., improving the nutritional, and sensory parameters in addition to the traditional and bioprocessing technologies of germination or malting, fermentation, and enzymatic hydrolyzation, popping or puffing, soaking and cooking (Ahmed et al., 2013). 1: 29 1767. The composite flour containing kodo (Paspalum Scrobiculatum) and barnyard Millet (Echinochloa colona) flour, whole wheat flour and defatted soy flour of four different combinations was prepared andstudied the impact of Millet flour blend incorporation on characteristics of composite flour. Proso millet was having higher antitryptic activities than the other two, and foxtail millet had no detectable antichymotryptic activity under the assay conditions used. In finger millet, the thin layered membranous pericarp is loosely attached to and covers the entire seed and can be easily detached via abrasion or during postharvest handling (Shobana and Malleshi, 2007). (1982) analyzed the protease inhibitors of trypsin, chymotrypsin, and pepsin in the different millet varieties in detail. The dietary fiber of Panicum milare (samai) has the capacity to strengthen the skeletal muscles. Pl. The other occasional species are A. pulla, A. oryzae, and A. soccata. Grain detoxification is achieved by a year of storage or by keeping it overnight in buffalo dung. In general, the importance of individual millet type varies with respect to agro-ecological systems, where they grow, and the food culture of the people. Use of lodging-resistant cultivars along with good crop husbandry is the most effective way to minimize losses due to lodging. Core collections representing diversity of entire collections of these crops have been developed for identification of new sources of variation for major prevailing biotic and abiotic stresses, and for quality as well as important agronomic traits. Kodo millet is generally cultivated with its weedy species and no distinction is made between the species during harvest. Thus, because the seed coat is so intimately attached to the fragile endosperm, it is incorporated into the milled whole grain flour. Paspalum scrobiculatum L. is an accepted name This name is the accepted name of a species in the genus Paspalum (family Poaceae ). The pink borer S. inferens cause damage to the standing crop. Richard Morris. The mealy bug Brevennia rehi occasionally becomes a serious pest and the affected plants dry up completely (Fig. Millets are tropical cereals that produce small hull-less grains. If you have any useful information about this plant, please leave a comment. It starts with decorticating, malting, fermentation, roasting, flaking, and grinding. kodo millet is ground into flour and used to make pudding. Except two varieties, sorghum exhibited higher antichymotryptic activity than the antitryptic activity. Anju and Sarita (2010) claim that the biscuits made out of fox tail millet had a very low glycemic index (GI) of 50.8 than the GI value of 68 in the biscuits made from barnyard millet flour and refined wheat flour and thereby giving a strong cue that the millets can be exploited to develop low GI therapeutic products, such as biscuits, instead of just revolving around traditional foods, porridge, and chapatti (flat Indian bread). Proso, little, barnyard, and kodo millets are also affected by abiotic stresses, though they are generally considered well-adapted to abiotic stresses as compared to most other cereals (Dwivedi et al., 2012). 2.0 2.1; Mga sumpay ha gawas Ken Fern, (2012), the millets are embodiments of health benefits, such as anticancer capability, preventing the onset of cardiovascular diseases, suppressing tumor invasion and progression, managing blood pressure levels, cardio-protective in nature, preventing accumulation and absorption of bad cholesterol, giving a feeling of “fullness of stomach,” thereby delaying the frequency of food uptake. The wild forms are generally found along paths and ditches and on disturbed ground. Antitryptic activity alone was exhibited by pearl and foxtail millets. No. Barnyard millet is reported to be tolerant to drought and waterlogging (Zegada-Lizarazu and Iijima, 2005), while proso millet is susceptible to drought (Seghatoleslami et al., 2008). The nymphs and adults suck the developing grains and cause chaffy grains. We observed apparent discrepancies in the studies which are due to difference in genotype, age of seeds, extraction procedures, assay sensitivity, and the stability of inhibitors. John R.N. 1: 29. Comments have to be approved before they are shown here. Eleusine cora cana (finger millet) is capable of healing stomach ulcers (Tovey, 1994). 1: 29 1767 . Ravindran (1991) reported that the antitryptic activities of proso, finger, and foxtail millets were high compared to their antichymotryptic activities. Patil, in Insect Pests of Millets, 2017. Geremew Bultosa, in Encyclopedia of Food Chemistry, 2019. Paspalum scrobiculatum. Noxious Weed Information; This plant is listed by the U.S. federal government or a state. • Paspalum scrobiculatum is a millet that thrives in the poorest soil. It is also a good choice of animal fodder for cattle, goats, pigs, sheep, and poultry. These seeds are very good and have many health benefits such as promoting a healthy weight, promotes good blood pressure. Wild and cultivated types of Kodo millet grow together, and the species is widely distributed across the tropics and subtropics of Asia and Africa (De Wet et al., 1983b). Pl. Paspalum scrobiculatum Preferred Common Name; ricegrass paspalum Taxonomic Tree; Domain: Eukaryota Kingdom: Plantae Phylum: Spermatophyta Subphylum: Angiospermae Class: Monocotyledonae; Summary of Invasiveness; P. scrobiculata is a common weed in the tropics. A Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA comparison of African and Indian kodo millet accessions, however, revealed that there were distinct differences between them (M'Ribu and Hilu, 1996). Flora Zambesiaca 10:3. Paspalum longifolium pseudo-orbiculare Jansen. The fat has similar quantities of linoleic and oleic acid, making up 70% of the total fatty acids of the major lipid fraction. Dried up kodo millet plant due to Brevennia rehi damage. Globally, more than 29,000 accessions of proso millet, 8,000 accessions each of barnyard and kodo millet, and more than 3,000 accessions of little millet have been conserved. scrobic (Paspalum scrobiculatum) is a moderate-sized grass (usually 0.5-1.5 m tall) with relatively narrow leaves (3-12 mm across). Ingredients: Kodo millet flour 500g. Eleusine cora cana (finger millet) is capable of healing stomach ulcers (Tovey, 1994). The flowers are highly cleistogamous with a maximum opening of up to 50% only, i.e., this is a highly self-pollinated crop. Paspalum akoense Hayata. The condensed tannins in some sorghum and finger millet types can reduce their protein quality in respect of digestibility but at the same time exert high antioxidant activity, which has potential health benefits. scrobiculatum is found to grow well on hillside slopes where other grasses do not flourish. A geriatric food ambali is prepared from finger millet, which is rich in calcium and low in resistant starch. Traditional unfermented millet flatbreads are made from either decorticated or nearly whole grain flour (Kajuna, 2001; Saleh et al., 2013). A. Sathya, in Food Processing for Increased Quality and Consumption, 2018. From: Genetic and Genomic Resources for Grain Cereals Improvement, 2016, John R.N. L. Poaceae. Last update on 2019-06-13: Now containing 11906 plants. To date, the anti-nutrients in kodo millet have not been investigated. Many types of millet-based traditional foods and beverages are consumed by the people of Africa and India. The statistics for kodo, little, and barnyard millets are combined together, and these species are grown only in India, except barnyard millet, which is also grown in Japan (only 1000 t per year). These traditional millet foods, such as porridges (fermented and unfermented), snacks are major energy-giving foods for people with rural, low economic backgrounds (Chandrasekara and Shahidi, 2011, 2012) undertaking strenuous manual labor. P. Anjali, P. Vijayaraj, in Functional and Preservative Properties of Phytochemicals, 2020. The total production in India is around 386 000 t per year. A few studies on germplasm characterization and evaluation were conducted by Upadhyaya et al. Paspalum scrobiculatum Linnaeus, Mant. While developing whole grains product or functional grain products, we need to pay enough attention on the expectations of the consumer that may influence a willingness to use these products. Kodo Millet (Paspalum Scrobiculatum) is a common food in parts of India. Flour variations include different types of millet, whether the grain/kernel structure is a caryopsis or utricle, and fat content (1.5%–5.2%) (Saleh et al., 2013). The shoot fly Atherigona simplex is the primary species attacking kodo millet (Singh and Dias, 1972; Nageshchandra and Ali, 1983; Raghuwanshi and Rawat, 1985). It well adapted in the tropics and subtropics. Teff and fonio (Digitaria exilis and Digitaria iburua) are also described as part of the millet. Paspalum scobiculatum (kodo millet) regulates the function of liver, prevents eye diseases, and regulates hormonal secretions. Ajna Fern high, 1–6 mm. Other minor millets include kodo (Paspalum scrobiculatum), little (Panicum sumatrense), Japanese barnyard (Echinochola crus-galli), fonio (Digitaria exilis), and teff (Eragrostis tef) millets. Together they form a unique fingerprint. This plant has no children Legal Status. with help from Globally, about 50,000 germplasm accessions of these crops have been conserved, and the largest collections of proso millet are in the Russian Federation and China, barnyard millet in Japan, and kodo millet and little millet in India. Paspalum deightonii (C.E.Hubb.) About 70 species of insect pests are recorded on kodo millet. The record derives from WCSP (data supplied on 2012-03-23 ) which reports it as an accepted name (record 432275 ) with original publication details: Mant. Development of appropriate value-addition methodologies is a prerequisite to creating a high demand among urban and nontraditional millet user communities. In addition to their basic nutrients, most millet grains are noted for their high levels of phenolic compounds such as phenolic acids and anthocyanins (Saleh et al., 2013). Taylor, M. Naushad Emmambux, in, Gluten-Free Cereal Products and Beverages, Encyclopedia of Food Sciences and Nutrition (Second Edition), Genetic and Genomic Resources for Grain Cereals Improvement, Proso, barnyard, little, and kodo millets, Hari D.

The decorticated mass is milled into flour by hand using stone mills. The species was domesticated in India some 3000 years ago. causes atrophied ovaries resulting in gall formation. The green leafhopper Nephotettix nigropictus sucks the sap from leaves and shoots. Sorghum types, in particular, can vary greatly in terms of grain color and whether or not they contain condensed tannins. Bake these one by one on a flat pan. It seems that when the consumers were personally convinced about the capability of the value-added products in mitigating diabetes, then they showed inclination and willingness to buy such functional products (Dean et al., 2011). 鸭毑草 ya jie cao Perennial or annual. Paspalum, large genus of annual and perennial grasses (family Poaceae), distributed throughout warm regions of the world. These authors state that Kodo millet is morphologically variable. Another Indian dish made from flour of popped finger millet is Ragi hurihittu, which has more amounts of reducing sugars with high amylase activity thereby making it desirable for its nutritional quality (Sarkar et al., 2015). Proso millet lines developed in the United States have had strong selection for lodging resistance (Baltensperger et al., 1995a, 1995b, 2004). It has relatively small flower spikelets (2-3 mm long) with long silky hairs on their margins and its seed-heads usually have 10-20 branches (i.e. It is also a good choice for animal fodder for cattle, goats, pigs, sheep, and poultry. It was a 14 Kda protein which inhibited bovine trypsin at 1:2 and bovine chemotrypsin at 1:1 ratios in a noncompetitive manner. In India, kodo millet is ground into flour and used to make pudding. As the world is not yet ready enough to consume regular millet-based products already available in the markets, it doesn’t make much difference if the value addition could be done for traditional millet varieties or for modern cultivars. Habit Perennial. The size of the granules varies from 1.2 to 9.5 μm. Figure 1.20. The ICRISAT gene bank in India conserves 849 accessions of proso millet, 749 accessions of barnyard millet, 665 accessions of kodo millet, and 473 accessions of little millet under medium- and long-term storage. The leaf roller C. patnalis and caseworm Hydrellia philippina occasionally damage the crop. Kodo millet has a 1000 kernel weight of 6.7 g. The bran and husk form a large proportion of the grain, about 37% (Malleshi and Hadimani, 1994). bispicatum Hack. But, owing to their significant role as multigrain functionality and gluten-free merit, nowadays, their attention has been drawn toward them. M.I. Amylase inhibitor identified in the barnyard millet was 10.72 kDa protein, which was expressed from 7 to 28 days of development (Panwar et al., 2018). Gramineae, W. D. Clayton. web interface by The crop is hardy and drought-resistant, and is capable of growing in marginal soils. 1767. in diam., the nodes mostly exposed, erect or ascending from a decumbent base and rooting at the nodes below. It is grown in India from Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the south, to Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh in the north, and West Bengal in the east, as a food grain. Millets are subjected to processing methods that are traditionally done. High in protein and fiber content, cooks very similar to rice, these ancient grains are truly super foods! Roll out thick chapatis. The grain is enclosed in a hard, corneous husk, which makes debranning difficult. There was no any significant difference observed in trypsin inhibition activity of barnyard millet (7.87%–8.37%) and finger millet (8.02%–8.36%) varieties (Panwar et al., 2016). This plant can be weedy or invasive according to the authoritative sources noted below.This plant may be known by one or more common names in different places, and some are listed above.

However, a recent DNA study of accessions of cultivated Indian Kodo millet did not show great genetic diversity (Yadav et al., 2016). kodomillet. Taylor, in Sorghum and Millets (Second Edition), 2019. In Hawaii, var. In tribal sectors, it is cooked as rice also and out of flour tribal population prepares different recipes. The value-added products developed out of millets can be broadly classified: Traditional foods: porridge, snacks, ethnic Indian food (Adhirasam, Khakra), Bakery products: bread, rusk, biscuits, soup sticks, Instant food mix: murukku mix (an Indian snack). Culms Culms 10–150 cm. Sridhar and Lakshminarayana (1994) reported a higher fat content value (3.2%) than that reported in Table 6.2. The milled stock is separated into flour and bran by sieving. Therefore it is also called “ditch millet.” The plant has a strong fibrous root system and can be a good cover crop in areas that are prone to soil erosion. Fingerprint Dive into the research topics of 'In vitro starch digestibility and expected glycemic index of kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum) as affected by starch-protein-lipid interactions'. The grain is said to be poisonous after rain; this may be due to a fungal infection. P. scrobiculatum is found in wild (var. Of these, pearl, finger, and guinea millets and fonio are important grain-producing crops for millions of smallholder farmers in semiarid dry land in Africa, used predominantly for bread, porridge, and fermented beverages. The record derives from WCSP which reports it as an accepted name (record 432275) with original publication details: Mant. The amylose content expressed as a proportion of grain weight is about 20% on a dry weight basis. racemes).scrobic (Paspalum scrobiculatum) is a moderate-sized grass (usually 0.5-1.5 m tall) with relatively narrow leaves (3-12 mm across). Paspalum scrobiculatum is widely distributed in damp habitats across the Old World tropics. 1900 Mbp (Jarret et al., 1995). Mohar Singh, Hari D. Upadhyaya, in Genetic and Genomic Resources for Grain Cereals Improvement, 2016. Singh2 1&2Department of Biochemistry, N.D. University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, Faizabad-224 229 (U.P.) Kodo millet is primarily cooked as rice. The particular grain physical features of the sorghum and millet species and varieties affect milling and other food processing operations, whereas the chemical composition and antinutrients affect their nutritional and health-promoting properties. In Africa, it is cooked like rice. Kodo millet belongs to the genus Paspalum, a diverse genus comprising about 400 species, most of which are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas, and the main center of origin and diversity of the genus is considered to be South American tropics and subtropics (Chase, 1929). Gomez, S.C. Gupta, in Encyclopedia of Food Sciences and Nutrition (Second Edition), 2003. Its relatively small flower spikelets (2-2.5 mm long) do not have long silky hairs on their margins and its seed-heads usually have only 2-7 branches (i.e. Cytological studies have revealed the chromosome number as 2n = 40. Clayton Homonyms Paspalum scrobiculatum L. Paspalum scrobiculatum Commersonii & Stapf Common names Indian crown grass in language. In terms of mineral nutrients, finger millet is a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium (344, 137, and 408 mg/100 g, respectively) (Chandra et al., 2016). (Paspalum scrobiculatum ) has higher free radical quenching capacity (70%) compared to other millets like finger millet ( Eleusine coracana), little millet (Panicum miliare ), foxtail millet ( Setaria italica ), barnyard millet ( Echinochloa utilis ) and great millet (Sorghum bicolor ) (15-53%). Indian paspalum in English Indian paspalum in language. India Abstract Millets are one of the oldest foods known to humans and cultivated since time immemorial. (1978) showed that during germination, the antitryptic activity and antichymotryptic activity were markedly reduced in the endosperm of finger millet. The skipper butterfly Pelopidas mathias is an occasional pest. Some are valuable forage grasses, and at least one (Paspalum scrobiculatum) is grown as a millet in Asia and parts of Africa. racemes). Sorghum and the millet species (pearl, proso, foxtail, finger, barnyard and kodo millets, fonio and teff) greatly differ in their detailed grain anatomy, their appearance, grain physical properties, starch composition, essential amino acid content, fatty acids, and phytochemicals such as phenolic acids, anthocyanins and other flavonoids, condensed tannins, carotenoids, xanthophylls, phospholipids, and phytosterols. The length of the inflorescence varies from 2 to 12 cm. In utricle structures (finger, foxtail, and proso millet), however, the thin membranous pericarp is loosely attached to the seed coat, which in turn is intimately attached to the endosperm; hence the seed coat is often milled with the endosperm. Freshly baked millet bread is soft and flexible but quickly stales upon storage (within a day). Pearl millet has a larger germ and so is often decorticated.

Paspalum Medicine & Life Sciences Paspalum vaginatum, commonly known as seashore paspalum and by many other names, is a species of perennial grass which can be found in wet, saline habitats. Armyworms M. separata and S. mauritia generally occur during the seedling stage of the crop. Thrips, Stenchaetothrips biformis, feed on leaves during the seedling stage. 1989. Taylor, M. Naushad Emmambux, in Gluten-Free Cereal Products and Beverages, 2008. A very variable species, possibly a swarm of apomicts[266. The protease inhibitors are other nutritional barrier for millets. Sources for salinity tolerance have been reported (Acc. Scrobic (Paspalum scrobiculatum L.) is a vigorous, tufted (up to 60 cm diameter) and slender perennial grass.It grows to a height of 0.3-1 m. The roots are rather shallow and the stems are ascending, branched and somewhat succulent. Winnowed, clean, healthy grain seems to pose no health problem. Method of preparation: Prepare dough of Kodo millet flour and make small portions of the dough. The green bug Nezara viridula, Dolycoris indicus, and the earhead bug Leptocorisa acuta are the serious pests on earheads. Anti-diabetic, Anti-obesity, Anti-cholesterol and anti-hypertension, Helps in weight management, Cholesterol reduction. Kodo millet had been the main staple food in south India, especially in Tamilnadu, until the late 1970s. They comprise pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum), finger millet (Eleusine coracana), kodo millet (Paspalum setaceum), proso millet (Panicum miliaceum), foxtail millet (Setaria italica), little millet (Panicum sumatrense), barnyard millet (Echinochloa utilis), guinea millet (Brachiaria deflexa), and brown top millet (Brachiaria ramosa).

Heavy metal tolerance (copper and zinc) at seedling stage was found highest in kodo millet followed by proso millet (Arora and Katewa, 1999). Udupa and Pattabiraman (1985) isolated and characterized the inhibitor protein from Japanese barnyard millet. Kodo millet is indigenous to India, and it is believed to have been domesticated some 3000 years ago (House et al., 1995). The food baskets of Americans and Europeans do not have much of a place for millets. Paspalum commutatum Nees Paspalum confertum J.Le Conte Paspalum confertum Leconte Paspalum coromandelinum Lam. This crop is grown in the monsoon season. Not surprisingly, however, the radical quenching activity decreases when the grain is decorticated or heated by roasting and boiling. In Africa it is cooked like rice.

About the plant: Kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum) is a cereal plant. commersonii) form mostly in Africa and in cultivated (var. It may also have potential to be used as grass ties on hillside plots to prevent soil erosion, while also providing a famine food as a secondary purpose. Genomic resources are limited and efforts to develop such resources through high-throughput genotyping are in progress. Chandrasekher et al. Amino and guanido groups were found to be essential for antitryptic activity, whereas only guanido groups were essential for antichemotryptic activity. The prolamin protein is similar to barnyard and foxtail millets (Parameswaran and Thayumanavan, 1997). Paspalum scobiculatum (kodo millet) regulates the function of liver, prevents eye diseases, and regulates hormonal secretions. According to FAO (2012), negative changes in the sensory and nutritive properties develop during processing as viable processing methods have not yet been standardized to the required fully fledged level as that of wheat and rice. The database and code is licensed under a The plant height can vary from 30 to 90 cm, with 10–48 basal tillers per plant. Health benefits. In comparison to finger, barnyard, and pearl millets, kodo millet has the highest free radical quenching potential, indicating possible useful antioxidant activity (Hedge and Chandra, 2005). The crop matures in 4–6 months with yields varying from 250 to 1000 kg/ha (Hulse et al., 1980). Reported to have originated from the Americas, it can be a serious weed of rice in West Africa.
