Phosphorus (P) is an essential mineral element required in large quantities by plants. Globally, the availability of P in many soils is poor. Breeding crops that can acquire and utilise this limited resource with high efficiency is an important goal for agricultural sustainability in the future. The mapping and cloning of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) provides an effective tool in analyzing the genetic mechanisms underlying P efficiency and breeding P-efficient varieties.
