Limited remobilization of Zn from vegetative tissues into grains via phloem is a major physiological barrier against Zn loading into cereal grains. In present experiment, doubled-haploid mapping population (150 lines, derived from Clipper ×Sahara) of barley was genetically characterized for differential Zn remobilization. The germplasm was grown under(More)
Agronomic biofortification of Zn requires an effective Zn application method and efficient Zn utilization by the crops. Various Zn application methods were compared for Zn biofortification in grains of wheat grown in a calcareous soil under glasshouse conditions. Wheat (cv. Shafaq-2006) was treated with different Zn applications to soil (0, 4.5 or 9 mg Zn(More)
Estimating variation in grain mineral concentration and bioavailability in relation to grain yield and the year of cultivar release is important for breeding wheat with increased content of bioavailable minerals. The grain yield and yield components, grain phytate concentration, and concentration and bioavailability of minerals (zinc Zn, iron Fe and calcium(More)
