I’m planning to start Millets cultivation in 3-4 acres starting January 2014. I wish to know if there is any specific combination of millet varieties that I have to choose if cultivating them in nearby areas, to avoid cross pollination. I’m interested to sow (Kuthiravali (Barnyard), Varagu (Kodo), Saamai (Little), Panivaragu (Proso) and Ragi (Finger) millets in my land.
I wish to know of the pest control techniques to follow and also the precautions to be ensured before and after sowing.
If some one can also provide with seed grains for these millets it would be of great help. Thanks.
