    This article gives information about importance of Marking Nut tree, its industrial and medicinal uses - Category: Agriculture
  • Niger: An Underutilized and High Value Oilseed Crop ( 303 reads)   

    This article gives an account the origin, nutritional contents, food and industrial value of Niger [Guizotia abyssinica (L.f.) Cass.] crop. Gives information about extent of variability in oil content and fatty acid profile - Category: Agriculture
  • Millets: Climate Resilient Future Crops ( 2177 reads)   

    This article provides account of technologies for sustaining millets production and utilization. Millets comprising of sorghum, pearl millet, and small millets namely finger millet, foxtail millet, kodo millet, proso millet, barnyard millet and little millet are grown in arid and semi-arid tracts of Asian, African under low rainfall where fine cereals cannot be grown profitably. Millets possess advantages such as early maturing, drought tolerance, require minimal purchased inputs and mostly free from biotic and abiotic stresses. - Category: Agriculture
