Improving Nutrition in India through Biofortified Crops

In this video, Binu Cherian and Parminder Virk of HarvestPlus discuss why biofortification can be an effective measure to help address micronutrient deficiencies, especially as a complementary approach to other interventions. They highlight three advantages of biofortification: sustainability, cost effectiveness, and ability to reach consumers in rural areas. They also note several biofortified crops that Indian consumers can expect in the near future.
