Kodo millet was domesticated in India almost 3000 years ago. It is found across the old world in humid habitats of tropics and subtropics. It is a minor grain crop in India and an important crop in the Deccan plateau.
The fiber content of the whole grain is very high. Kodo millet has around 11% protein, and the nutritional value of the protein has been found to be slightly better than that of foxtail millet but comparable to that of other small millets. As with other food grains, the nutritive value of Kodo millet protein could be improved by supplementation with legume protein
About the farm
Initiated in 1990, the Collective has been attempting to respond to the desperate situation and agrarian crisis in 140 villages of Chennekothapalli, Roddam and Ramagiri Mandals of Anantapur District.
