The major objective of the action research is to increase production and daily consumption of nutritious small millets, pulses and oil seeds in rainfed regions of India, Nepal and Sri Lanka by using gender sensitive participatory approaches to address constraints related to the production, distribution, and consumption of underutilized species.

Millets are a group of highly variable small-seeded grasses, widely grown around the world as cereal crops or grains for human food and as fodder. There is evidence of the cultivation of millet in. Compared to major cereals, small millets are capable of meeting the immediate need for food security in at least five important ways.

(i) Small millets ensure subsistence and income to the marginal population because yield loss or the influence of other external factors (i.e., climate, rainfall, and disease) that impact on productivity is minimal compared to major cereals.

Small millets, referred to as ‘Nutri-cereals’, comprise of finger mille t, little millet, foxtail millet, kodo mi llet, barnyard millet and pr oso millet, and are an important group of dr y.

Millets and the history. Millets are a group of highly variable small-seeded grasses, widely grown around the world as cereal crops or grains for Advances in Small Millets book food and as fodder. There is evidence of the cultivation of millet in the Korean Peninsula dating to the Middle Jeulmun Pottery Period (around 3,–2,BC).

The millets comprise at least 11 cultivated species, all with small to tiny seeds. Sorghum and millets are notably hardy crop plants, having a low water requirement. They are predominantly cultivated in tropical and subtropical zones in Africa and Eurasia, where they were domesticated several thousand years ago.

Figure 1: Different varieties of millets varieties A. Millets and Its Potential Millets are tiny in size, round in shape and minor cereals of the small seeded-grass family (Poaceae).

They are rich in micronutrients - far more so than most Small millets are rich in micronutrients – and account for about 10% of global millet are extremely resilient in the face of drought and other abiotic stresses, making them valuable food.

Millets have a lower glycaemic index as compared to rice. As a result, the grains are digested and absorbed by the body slowly, lowering the blood glucose and insulin levels. Small-scale, easy-to-use mechanical grain-processing technology would undoubtedly lower some of the barriers to making greater use of minor millets and rolling out value chains based on millets.

The project team sourced local prototypes of micro-mills to de-hull and polish Italian and little millet, but these did not prove to be cost-effective. Millets are typically annuals and range in height from 30 to cm (1 to 4 feet), with the exception of pearl millet (Pennisetum glaucum), which has stalks to 3 metres (5 to 10 feet) tall and about cm (1 inch) inflorescences may be spikes or racemes, in which the flowers are borne on stalks of about equal length along an elongated axis, or panicles with dense clusters of.

Small scale processing machines and process flows have been developed. But the inherent variations in the harvested grains’ characteristics is significant. This problem magnifies when the small millets are aggregated for processing. So in that sense, there is an inherent advantage in small scale processing.

Cereals like Sorghum, Millets, Wheat, Maize and Rice are major staple foods of the most population. Millets (/ ˈ m ɪ l ɪ t s /) are a group of highly variable small-seeded grasses, widely grown around the world as cereal crops or grains for fodder and human food. Millets are important crops in the semiarid tropics of Asia and Africa (especially in India, Mali, Nigeria, and Niger), with 97% of millet production in developing countries.

The crop is favored due to its productivity and short. Millet, (Turkish: “religious community,” or “people”), according to the Qurʾān, the religion professed by Abraham and other ancient prophets.

In the heterogeneous Ottoman Empire (c. –), a millet was an autonomous self-governing religious community, each organized. The enormously increasing population is raising needs for solving the problem of food scarcity. Researchers and nutritionists are working hard to find the cheaper and larger sources of nutrients to deal with this scarcity.

Pearl millet, a staple crop is economically feasible for poorer section of the world’s population and works are going on for the improvement in the bio-accessibility of.

Millets (sorghum, pearl millet and small millets) are the important food and fodder crops in semi-arid regions, and are predominantly gaining more importance in a world that is increasingly becoming populous, malnourished and facing large climatic uncertainties.

These crops are adapted to wide range. Some of the neglected cereals described previously—sorghum, finger millet, and pearl millet, for example—are not, strictly speaking, "lost." But there are a number of African food grains that are indeed truly overlooked by all of modern science.

Most of these come from wild grasses (see next. Lecture 08 Small Millets The grains of small millets are small in size, hence they are called small millets. The characters of small millets are hardy, drought, resistant, with little care it grows and gives some yield, can be grown in sub marginal lands also as a rainfed crop, mostly grown by hill tribes.
