- Proso millet is a relatively low demanding crop and diseases aren’t known. That’s why Proso millet is often used in organic farming systems in Europe.
- In the United States it is often used as an intercrop. Thereby, Proso millet can help to avoid a summer fallow, and continuous crop rotation can be achieved.
- Its superficial root system and its resistance to atrazine residue make Proso millet a good intercrop between two water and pesticide demanding crops.
