Millet cultivation to get a push

Visakhapatnam, January 30, 2015 Rani Devalla

Organisation formed to promote best farming methods

After reviewing the present millet farming practices, farmers from 45 villages across Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam and other districts have come up with the concept of integrated millet cultivation.

The recent biodiversity festival, organised by the Millet Network of India (MINI) in collaboration with Sabala and Sarada Valley Development Samithi (SVDS), paved the way for setting up of Millets Producers’ Organisation wherein millet farmers from 45 villages across Coastal Andhra will join hands to constitute four committees under a registered body.
