J.R.N Taylor, in Reference Module in Food Science, Abstract. Pearl millet is the most important millet species, accounting for approximately half the total worldwide production of millets. It is mainly cultivated in India and Africa and is uniquely tolerant of hot and dry conditions.

The grain of pearl millet generally has higher fat and hence higher energy, higher protein content, and. Here, progress made using classical breeding and genomics to improve sorghum and pearl millet nutritional quality is summarized. The integration of advanced genomics tools and plant breeding methods will significantly contribute for rapid enhancement of nutritional value of sorghum and pearl millet to help combat micronutrient malnutrition.

This book presents the history of, and current approaches to, farmer-breeder collaboration in plant breeding, situating this work in the context of sustainable food systems, as well as national and international policy and law regimes.
