ICBA hosts open day to raise awareness, showcase research on millets

Climate change poses major risks to future global food security and nutrition. Drought and other weather extremes and environmental factors exacerbated by climate change are forecast to impact agriculture and reduce yields of staple crops such as wheat, rice, and maize. But agrobiodiversity holds great potential for mitigating such threats to agriculture in different parts of the world as there are many forgotten and neglected crops which are more tolerant of biotic and abiotic stresses and have better nutritional profiles.
