Barnyard millet (Echinochloa frumentacea (Roxb.) Link) is an oldest crop, which is known as sawan and cultivated for fodder and food grains in particular pockets (Hilly areas) of many states in India. It has been cultivated in Asia including China, Korea, Japan, erstwhile USSR as well as India. It is also grown in USA and Central African countries. Barnyard millet grains are nutritious and cooked as rice after shelling. It is one of the quickest growing short duration crop, some cultivars come… Expand
Breeding Advancements in Barnyard Millet
TLDR
In recent years, barnyard millet has received attention, mainly because of its high nutritive value and climate resilience and production gap exists between yields realized at farmers’ fields because of prevalence of local cultivation practices. Expand
Barnyard millet – a potential food and feed crop of future
TLDR
This work is an attempt to compile the meagre information available on crop history, evolution, crop breeding and present status to make the crop competitive and revamp its cultivation. Expand
Foxtail and Barnyard Millets
TLDR
In foxtail and barnyard millets, genetic-based broadening is required for agronomic traits particularly yield-related traits, resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses and nutritional traits. Expand
Proso, barnyard, little, and kodo millets
Proso, barnyard, little, and kodo millets are highly nutritious with diverse usage. They are well adapted to harsh climatic conditions, require limited inputs, and are the potential crops for foodExpand
Genetic and genomic resources, and breeding for accelerating improvement of small millets: current status and future interventions
TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive insight into the importance of small millets, the global status of their germplasm, diversity, promising germ plasm resources, and breeding approaches (conventional and genomic approaches) to accelerate climate-resilient and nutrient-dense small millet improvement for sustainable agriculture, environment, and healthy food systems.

Molecular Approaches for Harvesting Natural Diversity for Crop Improvement
TLDR
This chapter has tried to discuss the domestication events with respect to genetic architecture in crop plants during the course of evolution, crop improvement for food and nutritional security, role of crop genetic resources and their importance, genetic bottlenecks responsible for narrowing down of genetic diversity, significance of conservation of natural variation, and base-broadening conventional approaches.

Genetic and Genomic Resources for Grain Cereals Improvement
TLDR
This is the first book to bring together the latest available genetic resources and genomics to facilitate the identification of specific germplasm, trait mapping, and allele mining that are needed to more effectively develop biotic and abiotic-stress-resistant grains. Expand
Integrating principal component score strategy with power core method for development of core collection in Indian soybean germplasm
Soybean is a leading oilseed crop in India, which contains about 40% of protein and 20% of oil. Core collection will accelerate the management and utilization of soybean genetic resources in breedingExpand
