Pearl millet is Eritrea’s second most important cereal crop. Embedded in Eritrea’s millet improvement programme, this study summarizes the results of an on-farm appraisal of millet varieties at 3 study sites in western Eritrea. The participating communities were asked to rank improved and traditional varieties. Men generally preferred the improved varieties for their higher yields, while women preferred the traditional landraces owing to taste and food quality.
