A Study on Millet's Based Cultivation and Consumption in India

Publisher: Indian Research Journal

“ Millets are one of the oldest foods known to humans & possibly the first cereal grain to be used for domestic purposes ”.Millets are small-seeded grasses that are hardy and grow well in dry zones as rain-fed crops, under marginal conditions of soil fertility and moisture. Millets are also unique due to their short growing season. They can develop from planted seeds to mature, ready to harvest plants in as little as 65 days. This is important in heavily populated areas. When properly stored, whole millets will keep for two or more years.
