Publisher: MSSRF

A value chain assessment was carried out in 2017 by Bioversity International, M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation, and Action for Social Advancement to fill this knowledge gap and to explore current opportunities and constraints for improving marketing of small millets in the region. The research took its point of departure in the farming communities in Mandla and Dindori districts, then followed the crops to the district cities, Jabalpur, Bhopal, and beyond. The assessment was carried out using semistructured interviews to collect information about and perceptions from stakeholders along the millet value chain including farmers, farmer collectives, vendors, supermarkets, restaurants, consumers, and experts.
