Book Description :

Cereal grains play an important role in meeting the nutrient needs of the human population. Like any food, they are good to excellent sources of some nutrients and low or void in other nutrients. The vitamins content varies from one part of grain to another. The quality of cereal products is determined by a variety of characteristics which may be assigned different significance depending on the desired and use or type of product. Wheat, through the centuries, has been intimately associated with food uses for man. The usual conversion of wheat to a food product results in some proportion of kernel becoming an animal feed. The wheat milling industry produces bran, red dog, germ, and shorts and these secondary fractions amount to approximately 25% of the whole grain. Rice is one of the leading food crops of the world and is produced in all continents. It is generally considered to be a tropical crop; yields are higher in temperate areas than in the tropics. Rice is comparatively high in caloric value, N free extract, and rice protein has a fairly good balance of the essential amino acids. Rice variety is divided by grain size and shape into three types, known as short, medium and long grain rice. Historically and now through planned breeding, each grain type is associated with specific milling, cooking and processing characteristics. There are number of rice varieties of each grain type in commercial production and new ones are continually in the process of being developed and released. Barley is a crop with worldwide distribution; it is preeminent plant for the use in experimental genetic studies. Barley has a high degree of self fertilization, but is easily hybridized. Barley grain is rich in starch and sugars, relatively poor in protein and very low in fat. Corn kernels are flat seeds due to pressure during growth from adjacent kernels on the cob. They are botanically classified as a caryopsis (dry, indehiscent, single seeded fruit) and are attached to the cob by the pedicle. Corn and corn products are generally the most cost effective feeds or feed supplements available. Popcorn is undoubtedly the oldest snack food and has been consumed for centuries. The grasses known collectively as millets are a set of highly variable small seeded plant species indigenous to many areas of the world. Millets are of value especially in semiarid regions because of their short growing season and higher productivity under heat and drought conditions. Pearl millet is the most widely grown millet and is a very important crop in India. The common oat (Avena sativa) is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name (usually in the plural, unlike other grains). While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Oats make up a part of the daily diet of horses, about 20% of daily intake or smaller, and are regularly fed to cattle as well. Oats are also used in some brands of dog food and chickenfeed. Oat seeds are commonly marketed as cat grass to cat enthusiasts, since cats readily harvest and eat tender young oat, wheat, and some other grass sprouts. Sorghum is a genus of numerous species of grasses, one of which is raised for grain and many of which are used as fodder plants either cultivated or as part of pasture. The plants are cultivated in warmer climates worldwide. Maize, wheat and rice together accounted for 87% of all grain production worldwide, and 43% of all food calories, while the production of oats and rye have drastically fallen from their previous levels. Some of the fundamentals of the book are origin of wheat classification of wheat, endeavours to find industrial uses for wheat, criteria of wheat quality, botanical criteria of quality, milling principles, extraction rate and its effect on flour composition, grain structure as affecting grinding, definition of flour extraction stone milling: yields of products, roller milling: flour extraction rates, rice production and utilization, origin of rice, comparison of rice with other cereal grains, composition of rice and cereal, breeding rice varieties with specific, industrial uses for rice and rice by products, caryopsis and composition of rice, gross structure of the rice caryopsis and its milling fractions etc. The present book contains processing of various cereals like wheat, rice, corn, oat, barley and sorghum with latest techniques. This is very useful book of entrepreneurs, agriculturists, researchers and professionals.

Book Description :

The estimated present value (US$42 million) of the proposed ILRI/ICRISAT/NARS collaborative research project on genetic improvement of millet and sorghum crop residues indicates fairly attractive returns, even with the cautious assumption made about likely adoption rates and the scope of the benefits (i.e. only meat and milk production in cattle in India). The estimated IRR to this research investment (28%) can be compared to market rates on alternative investments. Most longer-run, low-risk, private-sector investments yield rates of return three times as high as alternative investments. However, this raises the question of what is an appropriate rate of return to expect from 'public'good' type of investment such as the investment in international development oriented research. The same methodological approach was recently used (Kristjanson et al 1999) to estimate potential returns to a similary challenging crop-livestock research area, a vaccine against potential returns to a similarly challenging crop-livestock research area, a vaccine against trypanosomosis (a serious livestock disease that poses the greatest development constraint to mixed livestock-crop systems across Africa). Potential returns to this research were estimated at US$ 118 million, with an IRR of 25%, and a benefit:cost ratio of 15:1. In a comparison of predicted rates of return across 5 crop-livestock related research areas at ILRI, potential research benefits were estimated to outweigh the costs of the research by between 9 and 37 times. Returns of similar magnitudes have also been estimated for other crop improvement research. In an economic analysis of returns to 15 research themes at the Centro International de la Papa (CIP) the NPVs ranged from US$ 1 million to US$ 195 million (average US$ 67 million), with IRRs ranging from 13% to 51% (Walker and Collion 1997). ICRISAT ranked returns to 110 different research areas as part of their research priority-setting process several years ago. The average NPV, net benefit:cost ratio and IRR for the top 20 of those were US$ 61 million (with a range from US$ 8 million to US$ 265 million), 52:1 and 39%, respectively (Kelley et al 1995). Thus it appears that the magnitude of returns predicted in this study are very much in line with returns to similar research investments.

Book Description :

The spread of modern varieties and hybrids of pearl millet and sorghum that began in the mid-1960s has had an important impact on small farmer welfare in India. The success and sustainability of these improved cultivars resulted from three types (or periods) of interventions by the Indian government: (1) increased investments in crop improvement by national and international agricultural systems during the 1970s; (2) development of efficient seed systems, with the gradual inclusion of the private sector in the 1980s; and (3) the liberalization of the Indian seed industry in the late 1990s. In addition to increased overall production levels of sorghum and millet, there have been substantial yield gains in semi-arid regions as well as improved cultivars adopted in some of the poorest areas of India. The innovations of new, hybrid technology have not been limited to the Green Revolution crops; they have also had significant impact on the productivity of small-farmer households growing dryland crops, such as millet and sorghum in India.

Book Description :

This manual is for use by scientists and technicians who screen and evaluate varieties of sorghum and pearl millet for their grain quality. It is based on experience in agronomy and food technology acquired over several years in SADC/ICRISAT's Sorghum and Millet Improvement Program in Zimbabwe, hwre there is a focus on generalized screening methods for broad grain qualities rather than detailed component analysis of a molecular nature. Laboratory procedures, including qualitative and quantitative methods, were compiled from existing sources and modified in several ways for the Program's use. Quality parameters were focused on grain, on primary products such as flour, meal, and malt, and on such secondary products as baked flour, steamed flour, and porridge. The grain and these products were evaluated using physical and chemical methods, and a database was created to serve as an empirical reference document derived from field and laboratory results. The manual's first section, on grain-quality evaluation, describes rapid techniques for routine screening. The qualitative parameters used are: color, pericarp thickness, testa, endosperm texture, and hardness. Quantitative parameters comprise 100-kernel weight, Agtron readings, and moisture, floaters, dehulling loss, milling yield, size fractions, and water absorption expressed as percentages. Eight chemical methods of evaluation are described in the second section, among which only rapid tannin analysis forms part of routine screening tests. The last section (...).

Book Description :

Cultivated Plants, Primarily as Food Sources is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Global food demand is forecast to double and possible triple, by the year 2050, when more than 10 billion people will need to be fed worldwide. To ensure adequate nutrition for this growing population food production must be expanded faster than the population. Following a longer introduction chapter with some information on the history of crop production, the land used for agriculture, the cropping systems and the future trends, comes the knowledge in depth: The grain and cereal, the edible been plants, the vegetables and plants for edible starch, oil, sugar and beverage production, the fruits and nuts, the fiber, forage and industrial crops. Each subject contains glossary and bibliography for better and deeper understanding. At each important plant the history, the production technology, the importance of the crop in nutrition of growing population, the feeding value, some short case stories, and the future trends are discussed. When considering plant foods in relation to human health, it should be remembered that plant foods may also have health value in addition to their nutritional value. It would seem possible to modify the composition of plant foods as to improve human health. In developing countries, poverty leads to food shortage and under nutrition and many populations survive largely on plant-based diets. In industrialized countries, relative affluence leads to over consumption of food and especially to over-consumption of animal foods at the expense of plant foods. These two volumes, cultivated plants, primarily as food sources, help to get more detailed knowledge to overcome the mentioned problem of the World. These volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.
