India will be soon launching a campaign to promote the nutri-cereals millets across the country. The move was announced by Dr. Ashok Dalwai, IAS, CEO, National Rainfed Area Authority at the Indian Institute of Millets Research (IIMR), Hyderabad at a meeting to prepare a roadmap for the national millet mission.


The Union Agriculture Minister, Radha Mohan Singh will formally flag off the campaign in Pune which will be followed by a series of activities over the next few months.


The activities throughout the year would be spearheaded by IIMR in partnership with International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), State Agricultural Universities (SAU), National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) and many other non-governmental, private and international organisations.


Recently a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has also been signed between Nourish Inc technology and IIMR on licencing of millet value-added products.
