Abstract

By 2030, it is expected that the uncontrolled population growth rate shall pose a threat to world food-security. Moreover, the over-exploitation of routinely cultivated crops shall worsen the situation. Therefore, these crops are being genetically modified (GM) to enhance the yield and nutrition (biofortification) and to cope with the various abiotic (salinity, drought, temperature, heavy metals, ultraviolet radiation) and biotic stresses (pathogens, insects, weeds). As it is not affordable for every country to opt the GM technology, there is a need to find alternative crops which fulfills the dietary requirements of humans and can serve as feed for animals, without causing any toxicity. This review enlists certain crops with reported vigour (better tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses), adequate macro and micro nutrients, and several uses. These crops can be used as a substitute to the routine staple food crops.

Key Words
