Millets and Pseudo Cereals is the first comprehensive resource to focus on the potential crop improvements through genetic enhancements. The choice of food crop for a region is primarily determined by the conditions of climate and soil. Once labelled as orphan crops, millets and pseudo-cereals are now known as miracle grains due to their adaptation to harsh conditions and high nutritional quality. Small millets and pseudo-cereals are now seen to occupy special niches through their ability to adapt to challenging conditions. These crops have a comparative advantage in marginal lands where they withstand stress conditions and contribute to sustainable production. They also contribute to the diversity-richness and production stability of agro-ecosystems. Millets include sorghum, pearl millet, finger millet, foxtail millet, proso millet, barnyard millet, little millet and kodo millet while the other group which are not cereals but consumed as cereals and generally referred as pseudo-cereals comprises of grain amaranths, buckwheat and chenopods. Millets and Pseudo Cereals presents current information on the genetic architecture of important economic traits and the genomic resources for gene enabled breeding. This compilation contains information on the global status, available germplasm resources, nutritional value, breeding advancements, genomics applications and sustainability of agriculture through millets and pseudo-cereals cultivation. This book is a valuable resource for those conducting research and exploring new areas for advancing crop genetic understanding. Explores the current challenges of pseudo-cereal production and how that can be overcome by developing genetic and breeding resources using appropriate germplasm Provides holistic information on millets and pseudo-cereals Features global perspectives from an international contributing team of authors

Both sorghum and pearl millet are staple food crops for the poor people in the semi-arid tropics (SAT). However, during the last two decades both crops are becoming less important as staple food crops in SAT countries. Demand for course cereals (such as sorghum and pearl millet) as human food is decreasing in many countries, due to increased production and availability of preferred cereals (such as rice and wheat) at subsidized prices. The poor farmers in rainfed SAT cannot grow other crops, and are economically impacted negatively, as they do not get reasonable price for their produce. However, possibilties of alternative uses of sorghum and pearl millet are creating new opportunities that have potential to increase market demand and income to farmers.

The world continues to depend heavily upon a relatively small range of crops for food, fuel, fibre and industrial use, while many potentially good, economically acceptable alternatives exist. This book, which is the second in a series looking at underutilized crops, provides thorough details of those underutilized cereals and pseudocereals which are currently benefiting from research and others which have been neglected and deserve more research attention. Cereals and Pseudocereals considers in detail the potential for the following crops: quinoa, buckwheat, grain amaranth, triticale, fonio, intermediate wheatgrass and wild rice. Under the guidance of the International Centre for Underutilized Crops, the contents of this book have been drawn together by Professor Williams, who has wide research experience in the exploitation of new crops. The contents of this book will be of great interest and use to a wide range of people involved in work on the greater exploitation of currently underutilized crops, including upper level students in agricultural, plant and food sciences, researchers in development agencies and scientists working directly on improvement and exploitation of this group of crops.

Amongst the various concerns on sustaining agriculture to meet the expanding food needs of the future, the question of maintaining and improving ecosystem quality has emerged as an important issue. Global changes due to human pressure on the resource-limited world are threatening to degrade the carrying capacity of land. Ecosystems that are degraded or those that have reached a stage of degradation such that their original biotic communities (or agriculture) cannot be supported any longer are considered as stressed. Degradation results when land-use requirements are not matched by land qualities. Stressed environments occur mainly in developing semi-arid tropical countries where a web of interrelated reinforcing factors maintains rural poverty, unplanned population growth, expansion of farming into marginal lands, deforestation, soil erosion, water pollution, degradation of land and unsustainable agriculture. An eminent group of scientists met in Hyderabad, India, in February 1993 to devise alternate systems of land management that would restore degraded lands back to productivity, optimize natural resource use, and stabilize dryland production. The set of 34 invited papers included in this volume attempt to provide insights in a holistic multidisciplinary approach on the constraints that undergird technologies for sustainable land-use in stressed environments.
