Keynote Speech by Minister Arefaine Berhe at the National Wheat and Maize Conference

At the outset I warmly welcome you all, and especially those coming from outside Eritrea, to this maiden conference on wheat and maize. However, as 2023 is the year of millets please allow me to digress a bit from the main theme. In the Eritrean context, the most cultivated and consumed crop is sorghum which is a relative of millets. The other widely and commonly used crops are pearl millet and finger millet. Millets, as we all know, have been an integral part of our civilization for centuries nourishing alarge part of humanity. These humble grains are known for their nutritional value, adaptation to diverse climate with minimal requirement for water and inputs.
