Dr. Prakash D Patil
Good health needs enough nutrients; these are the basic component of health. Availability of food and nutrition is more unevenly distributed in the world. In fact, there is significant nutritional gap between developed and developing nations. It is said that nutritional hazards can often be associated with cropping pattern, season or culture realm. Because of fast increasing population and frequent failure of crops due to natural calamities of floods and drought food security is the major concern of India. In the present research paper an attempt has been made to assess the nutrients availability obtained from seven major food crops grown in the study area. Secondary data of food crops has been collected of all the 15 tehsils of the Jalgaon district. The availability of various nutrients is compared with the standard requirement recommended by the ICMR. The study reveals that, availability of nutrients is deficit to the rural population of Jalgaon district.
