Millets Are Back on the Menu, but Not Quite Like Before

Abstract : Millets have held a historical place in the agricultural production, culinary traditions, and cultural life of many communities in south India. Due to policy neglect in the latter half of the 20th century, when rice and wheat were the stars of the “Green Revolution”, neither research not infrastructures were set up to support the production or consumption of millets. Since the mid-2000s, various actors are progressively showing an interest in this family of crops. The structures put in place through this millet renewal present a hybridation of conventional agricultural and alternative practices that the author seeks to explore through a food systems approach. Are millets seeds of resistance or simply the next lucrative fad? How does the appropriation of this traditional crop affect producers’ and consumers’ perceptions of their territory and culinary habits?
