The Nutrient rich millet crops can be cultivated in adverse soil and climate conditions. As a behest from India United Nations with the aim of creating awareness, to increase production and consumption of millets declared 2023 as the International Year of Millets. Hence the study focussed on estimating the growth performance of Nutri cereals (Millets) in India. The growth performance was estimated using the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR). The secondary data on millets area, production and productivity from 1992 to 2021 were collected from various publications like Indiastat and APEDA. This study revealed that the area and production is declining for the past three periods as a result of the green revolution. There was a significant increase in productivity in the last two periods due to the introduction of high yielding, pest and disease resistant varieties. This study will help in understanding the growth trend of millet during the periods and be able to suggest ways in increasing area, production and productivity of millet cultivation in India.
