Millets: Ensuring Climate Resilience and Nutritional Security

Vilas A. Tonapi (Editor) J.V. Patil (Editor)

Millets: Ensuring Climate Resilience and Nutritional Security presents the current status of germplasm resource management and genetic improvement of group of climate smart nutri-cereal crops called Millets encompassing Sorghum, Pearl Millet, and small Millets comprising Finger Millet, Foxtail Millet, Kodo Millet, Proso Millet, Barnyard Millet and Little Millet. The focus is on genetic improvement, agronomy, physiology, biotic and abiotic stresses, pest and disease management, molecular marker-aided approaches for improvement of millets, nutritional and health benefits of Millets, utilization pattern, creating demand through value addition, commercialization and marketing of Millet products, sustaining viability of informal Millet seed systems and Innovative seed delivery models. The emphasis is on improvement of millets elucidating the future road map to enhance scope of millets as ‘Miracle Nutri Cereals’ through value chain to ensure food, feed, fodder, biofulel, nutritional and livelihood security, including climate resilience.
