pulses per year
Strategy:
• Organizing cluster demonstrations over an area of 50 ha in each
identified village.
• Promotion of short duration varieties through minikit programme
• Capacity building of field functionaries/farmers/officers

Millets and Nutri Cereals in India
20
Why Nutri – Cereals ?
Good for controlling anemia, malnutrition, digestive
diseases, kidney & liver disorder and asthma
Rich in antioxidants, has anti-cancer properties,
Reduces-BP & heart diseases
Rich in dietary fiber and eliminates problems of
constipation, cramping and gas bloating
Beneficial for treating stomach ulcer and gall stones
Gluten free and used for digestive disorder
Beneficial in preventing allergic reactions
21
Benefits of Growing Millets
Provide nutritious food and fodder.
Less water consuming than other cereals.
Grows faster and putting less stress on environment.
No pest and diseases problem.
Can grow in even marginal lands.
For achieving complete Food and Nutritional Security.
Will supplement the existing income of the farmers.
22
Gaps / Issues Pertaining Millets Promotion in India
■ Easy availability of fine cereals like rice
and wheat at a cheaper price to that of
nutritious cereals under Public Distribution
System (PDS).
■ Rapid urbanization.
■ Nutritious cereals are socially less valued
which necessitated the decline in their
consumption on rising of capita income.
■ Tedious and time consuming preparation
of Nutri-cereals foods.
■ Preference to cash payment by labourers
in lieu of taking food grain for work
performed.
■ Change in food habit particularly -
preference to fast food by younger
generation.

National Governance –No 9.
National Mission on Nutri-Cereals”(NMNC)

Cereals”(NMNC) in 2018-19 in 14 states covering 202 districts.
Objectives of NMNC-
■ Provide an inclusive and integrated development strategy for
research, production, demand and market oriented approach
■ Increasing production through area expansion and productivity
enhancement.
■ Doubling farm profits to restore confidence amongst the farmers.
■ Enhancing post harvest value addition at farm gate
■ Inclusion of nutri cereals under integrated child development
services.
