Dietary deficiency of iron and zinc micronutrients affects more than two billion people worldwide. Breeding for micronutrient-dense crops is the most sustainable and cost-effective approach for alleviation of micronutrient malnutrition. Three accessions of Aegilops peregrina (Hack.) Maire & Weill (2n = 28, UPUPSPSP), selected for high grain iron and zinc concentration were crossed with Triticum aestivum L. cv. Chinese Spring (Ph I ). The sterile F1 hybrids were backcrossed with elite wheat… CONTINUE READING
