With the exploitation of male sterile lines and introduction of high yielding hybrids, a breakthrough in the production of bajra has been achieved. The lipid content of bajra flour is very close to that of maize and is considerably higher than other cereals. It is a staple food of the poor people and therefore, covers a considerable portion of the limited lipid they consume.
