This paper reviews the role of and demand for food-feed-crops, that is crops that are grown to provide both grain for human food and crop residues as fodder for ruminant livestock. The paper argues that the predicted increase in demand for livestock products will coincide with shrinking common property resources and an increasing scarcity of arable land and water resulting in an increase in. Millets and sorghum are extremely important crops in many developing nations and because of the ability of many of them to thrive in low-moisture situations they represent some exciting opportunities for further development to address the continuing and increasing impact of global temperature increase on the sustainability of the world’s food crops.

the interventions in this trial were limited to feed processing (chopping) and nutrient balancing. Materials and methods Crossbred dairy cows (multiple crosses of HF and Jersey with varying levels of exotic inheritance) within 2–3 months of lactation were fed total mixed ration (TMR) produced locally at farmer premises by chopping. Cereal residues are an important feed source for ruminants in smallholder crop-livestock systems in the (sub)tropics. In many areas of India maize is a relatively new cash crop where farmers and development agents alike generally perceive maize stover to have limited utility, in contrast with the intensive feeding of other cereal residues in India and the intensive use of maize stover in sub.

Ethiopian sorghum landraces exhibit native genetic variation for drought and Striga resistance which this project aims to exploit in development of sorghum cultivars with resistance to these important stresses. ()Genetic enhancement of sorghum and millet residues fed to ruminants. (This ex ante impact assessment measures the potential economic impact of and returns to investment in. Sorghum is a cereal crop and recognized as a source of food, feed, fuel and fiber (4Fs). For Indonesia, sorghum is still regarded as a minor crop and its cultivation was limited and mostly grown by the local farmers in a specific region. Sorghum is not of Indonesian origin so that the available plant genetic variability was low.

Genetic enhancement may provide an alternative and practical strategy for improvement of nutritive value in cereal straws and stovers. This paper reviews the opportunities for the improvement of nutritive value by plant breeding, with particular reference to dual-purpose cultivars of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) and pearl millet (Pennisetum.

In the mixed farming systems of semi-arid India, farmers value residues for animal feed from crops such as sorghum and pearl millet as much as the grain for human consumption (Kelley et al., ). Furthermore, sales of crop residues to peri-urban livestock producers can generate as much as 50% of the income from cropping in the rural areas of.

Biomass produced from sorghum can be utilized as forage and silage to feed ruminant animals and as feedstock for biofuels and bio-based products.

The efficiency of biomass utilization is a function of biomass composition and plant architecture. Zerbini, E.; Thomas, D.

Opportunities for improvement of nutritive value in sorghum and pearl millet residues in South Asia through genetic enhancement.

Field Crops Research () 84 (1. Cereal crop residues are important feed resources for ruminants in developing countries. However, they are poor in nutritive value because digestible energy, crude protein and mineral contents are all low. Techniques to improve the feeding value of crop residues by chemical or biological means have not been adopted widely by small farmers in developing countries.
