Selenium in cereals: improving the efficiency of agronomic biofortification in the UK

  title={Selenium in cereals: improving the efficiency of agronomic biofortification in the UK},
  author={Graham H. Lyons},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Wheat, despite its relatively low selenium (Se) concentration in the UK, is still an important dietary Se source and its biofortification by use of Se fertiliser may be an efficient means to increase the relatively low Se status of the population. We need to know more about the fate of Se applied to the soil and how to ensure the efficiency of Se application, and the three studies reported in this issue of Plant and Soil are timely and informative. Selenium in soil, both globally and locally… CONTINUE READING
