Abstract:

Teff (Eragrostis tef) grass is a minor millet belonging to grass family Poaceae. Being a minor-millet it can withstand adverse conditions of soil and climatic factors. Ethiopia is the major teff grass producing country, a staple food for most of the population of the country. Today’s world is more concerned about healthy life which depends on consumption of nutritionally rich food products. Teff is nutritionally rich millet as compared to other cereals and is gluten free, can be substituted for wheat which causes celiac disease due to gluten protein. It is cultivated on marginal soils under traditional practices, which are the major causes for low yields of teff crop. Agronomic practices mainly planting method and nutrient management play an important role in increasing teff yields. Research studies have shown that row planting is advantageous over broadcasting (conventional method) of seeds as it ensures optimum plant population and well crop management. Recent trends in nutrient management are mostly depend only on chemical fertilizers, that to sole applications, this is need to be tackled by use of blended fertilizers or combination of organic and inorganic fertilizers for nutrient supply so as obtain maximum yield.
