What are Millets?
Millets are small-grained, annual, warm-weather cereals belonging to the grass family. They are highly tolerant of drought and other extreme weather conditions and have a similar nutrient content to other major cereals.
International Year of Millets
The United Nations has designated 2023 as the 'International Year of Millets'. This was suggested by the Indian Government. Millets are in the news these days because of their high nutritional value and other benefits. Due to their high nutritional value, millets are referred to as “Nutri-cereals”.
