Relationship between yield and mineral nutrient concentrations in historical and modern spring wheat cultivars

  title={Relationship between yield and mineral nutrient concentrations in historical and modern spring wheat cultivars},
  author={Kevin M Murphy and Philip Reeves and Stephen S. Jones},
The diet of approximately three billion people worldwide is nutrient deficient and most of the world’s poorest people are dependent on staple food crops as their primary source of micronutrients. One component of the solution to nutrient deficiencies is collaboration among plant breeders, cereal chemists and nutritionists to produce staple crop cultivars with increased mineral nutrient concentration. Sixty-three historical and modern wheat cultivars were evaluated for grain yield and… CONTINUE READING
