This research was conducted in Argungu Local Government Area of Kebbi State to assess the adoption of improved millet varieties by farmers. Sixty (60) respondents were purposively drawn from (3) districts: two Villages were selected from each of the districts (Alwasa, Bakaramba, Fakon Sarki, Kamfani, Sauwa, Zazzagawa). Sixty structured questionnaires were randomly administered and the data generated were carefully analyzed using simple descriptive statistics (frequencies and percentages). Result obtained indicates that 73.3% of the respondents used and tested new varieties millet. (Ex-gashua, Ex-Bornu and Sammil 1), 26.7 % did not use the improved varieties of millet. It is therefore recommended that local farmers should be enlightened and trained on the existence and advantages of using improved varieties of millet.
