Require less water

Millets can be grown in bad weather and poor soil conditions. They require less water. — Aman Keshav, Project Director, ATMA

The organisers urged people to join hands to restore the fast-depleting water table. “If we begin to include millets in our daily diet, we will not only help farmers, but also save water, said Aman Keshav, project director, Agricultural Technology Management Agency. Deputy Commissioner Dr Ruhi Dugg said these were sturdy crops that weren’t usually infested by pests.
