Résumé partiel
Millet is a cereal crop plant belonging to the grass family, Poaceae. The most important millets are pearl millet, finger millet, proso millet, foxtail millet and little millet. It is the staple food of the millions inhabiting the arid and semiarid tropics of the world. It contains low phytic acid and rich in dietary fiber, iron, calcium, and B vitamins. India ranks top in the production of millets. Tamil Nadu ranks first in productivity of finger millets. Dharmapuri is one of the leading districts in the production of minor millets and finger millet is the second most staple food in the region. Multistage sampling method was adopted for selection of district, taluk, villages and respondents. Dharmapuri district was purposely selected on the basis of area. Two taluk was selected based on highest area under minor millet cultivation. Three villages from each taluk were selected purposively on the basis of area. Finally five finger millet growers and five little millet growers from each villages were selected randomly. Thus the total sample contains 30 finger millet growers and 30 little millet growers. More than 90 • p r cent of the minor millet growers were married male with age of 45-50 and the farming experience of nearly 40 years. They were middle school level educated and more than 50 per cent of fanners were engaged in other occupation apart from fanning. Their annual family income was between 140000 and 170000 with a family size of 4-5 members and nearly half of them were involved in farming activities
