Revaloriser les millets en Inde.

Abstract : India, which has to provide food to a large population of 1.21 billion, faces many issues : an ecological milieu which has been seriously degraded ; an insufficient yield of agricultural products ; and the increasing development of food-related diseases. The Green Revolution, which has promoted chemical inputs and commercial crops at the expense of the diversity of food products, is partly responsible for this situation. However, organic and ecological systems of agriculture, which are relatively similar in their cultivation methods, but different in perspectives, may provide solutions to protect the environment and to diversify food patterns. One solution is to reintroduce millet in cultivation and consumption. Unappreciated by consumers today, these cereals thanks to their cultural and nutritional qualities are appropriate for the development of sustainable agriculture and food.
