Millets, a resilient and nutritious grain, are regaining prominence as a sustainable and circular crop. Once overshadowed, millets now contribute to closed-loop, eco-friendly farming. India leads in millet production, embodying circular economy principles by harmonizing economic activities with environmental well-being. Through diverse farming practices rejuvenating soil, repurposing grains/straws, and aligning with UN SDGs, the circular economy of millets offers advantages like responsible consumption/production and climate action. This article explores millets' transformative impact, innovative methods, farmer benefits, waste utilization, and increasing consumer awareness, positioning millets as a pathway to sustainable agriculture nurturing ecosystems, and reshaping our food-land connection.
