In this study two cultivars of pearl millet (Ugandi and Dembi yellow) were subjected to fermentation, damirga preparation and sprouting. These caused appreciable changes in the chemical composition (moisture, ash, fibre, protein and oil contents), but markedly reduced the minerals contents (Na, K, Mg, Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn) of pearl millet.

    Pearl millet ( Pennisetum glaucum [L.] R.Br.) is the staple food and fodder crop of farmers in the semi-arid areas of north-west India. The majority of farmers in western Rajasthan depend on their own seed production and employ different seed production strategies that involve different levels...
