Millet brings a windfall


http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-tamilnadu/millet-brings-a-windfall/article5435704.ece

A farmer of Muthukadu in Tamil Nadu has been harvesting a conventional minor millet “kuthiraivali” on his
fields recently.

The minor millet, with duration of 90 days, was raised on three acres of land and he is able to harvest an average 900 kg an acre.
“The kuthiraivali is a minor millet which can be raised on any dry land or wasteland,” says farmer Appavu Balandar.

The crop requires minimum
irrigation facility and is suited for
areas with less or poor rainfall in
the district, he says. It could
withstand drought-prone conditions up to 45 days. Against an investment of Rs. 2,500, the crop is expected to fetch prospective returns anywhere between Rs.11,000 and Rs.15,000 depending
upon the demand in the market as the produce was priced between Rs. 15 and Rs. 20 a kg, according to Appavu .

The crop was being revived through an initiative by Rose, a non-governmental organisation, which has been motivating farmers to re-discover the conventional crops which were raised in this part of the region.
According to Appavu, it could be raised as an alternative to paddy.

The crop is free from any pest
attack or disease. Less expenditure on cultivation and labour were the major advantages of this minor millet. There was a growing demand for the millet as it could be utilised for various dishes on the lines of rice.
