Introduction:-Minor millets


Minor millets are extensively cultivated in tribal and hilly areas but have no received adequate attention for their varietal improvement. These millets continue to be a part of subsistence agriculture. These have a common feature of being capable of growing in very marginal sloppy fields without any input and are invariably grown under rainfed conditions. In Himachal Pradesh, finger millet (ragi) is the most important minor millet. The other millets grown are Proso millets or common millet (cheena) and Italian milet or Foxtail millet (kangni). In kangni, HKC-8 and HKC-9 varieties may be grown.
