Abstract:
Small millets though rich in nutrients often popularly known as nutri-cereals, the area and productivity under small millet cultivation is low. One of the major constraints of traditional small millet cultivation is low productivity due to lack of knowledge on recommended package of practices and high yielding varieties. To replace this inconsistency of practices, AICRP on Small Millets, Regional Agricultural Research Station, Nandyal has conducted front line demonstrations in the farmer’s field. Farmers were provided with the inputs (improved varieties and package of practices). This resulted in higher yield than that of the farmer’s practices.
