Quinoa is a highly nutritious food product, being cultivated for several thousands years in South America, with an outstanding protein quality and a high content of a range of vitamins and minerals. Other positive aspects of quinoa are the saponins found in the seed hull and the lack of gluten. Quinoa is one of the main food crops in the Andean mountains, but during recent times there has been increased interest for the product in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Quinoa has been selected by… Expand
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) crop under Mediterranean conditions: a review
TLDR
In conclusion, quinoa may be suggested as a new alternative crop for semiarid and arid Mediterranean conditions affected by multiple abiotic stress factors because of its stress-tolerant characteristics, adaptability to several agro-ecological conditions, and nutritional and economic value. Expand
Breeding quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.): potential and perspectives
TLDR
New molecular tools available for the existing quinoa breeding programs, which are critically examined in this review, will enable us to tackle the limitations of allotetraploidy and genetic specificities. Expand
Quinoa ( Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) Breeding
TLDR
Current wide distribution and planting in large-scale farms have shown limitations because growth conditions are different from those typical in the origin center, but these can be overcome with new improved varieties using the highly diverse germplasm and appropriate breeding methodology. Expand
Quinoa—Evolution and Future Perspectives
TLDR
This high-quality protein grain with low glycemic index is promoted as a healthy food for celiac and diabetic patients and in the recent vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian diets, and future perspectives for quinoa point to the expected increase of its production around the world. Expand
An Andean Ancient Crop, Chenopodium quinoa Willd: A Review
Chenopodium quinoa Willd., is the oldest pseudocereal native from the Andean Region from 20° N in Columbia to 40°S in Chile, it grows from sea level to an altitude of 3 800 m, adapted to severalExpand

Abstract Chenopodium quinoa Willd., is the oldest pseudocereal native from the Andean Region from 20° N in Columbia to 40°S in Chile, it grows from sea level to an altitude of 3 800 m, adapted toExpand
Quinoa plant : origin and botanical properties Chenopodium quinoa
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is a basic food in pre-hispanic Andean communities, used not only as a food but also for medicinal purposes. The interest in quinoa has increased because of itsExpand
Chenopodium quinoa - an Indian perspective
TLDR
Quinoa's ability to produce high-protein grains under ecologically extreme conditions makes it important for the diversification of future agricultural systems, especially in high-altitude area of the Himalayas and North Indian Plains. Expand
Prospects for Quinoa (Chenopodium Quinoa Willd.) Improvement Through Biotechnology

The potential of quinoa as a multi-purpose crop for agricultural diversification: a review
TLDR
Quinoa starch has much smaller granules than do cereal starches, has a lower amylose content and is more viscous, which should make it suitable for some specialised industrial uses, including manufacture of a carbohydrate-based cream substitute. Expand
Quinoa: morphology, phenology and prospects for its production as a new crop in Europe
TLDR
The inheritance of different qualitative traits are shown, including genetic and cytoplasmic male sterility, which can be valuable in future breeding and in the production of hybrids. Expand
Adaptation of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) to Northern European agriculture: studies on developmental pattern
TLDR
It must be concluded that seed types originating from Chile were adapted for growth under North European conditions and should preferably be grown at a more southerly latitude. Expand
Cultivation of quinoa ( Chenopodium quinoa ) under temperate climatic conditions in Denmark
Field experiments with the South American grain crop, quinoa, were carried out at two sites in Denmark in 1988-90 in order to study the effects of varying the nitrogen fertilization rate, seed rate,Expand
The pattern of genetic diversity in the Andean grain crop quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd). I. Associations between characteristics
TLDR
It is concluded that the plant characteristics required for temperate agriculture are present to a large extent in the accessions from near sea level in southern-central Chile, but that the seed characteristics are scattered throughout the germplasm. Expand
Occurrence of sapogenins in leaves and seeds of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd)
Seeds of the Andean seed crop quinoa usually contain saponins in the seed coat. Saponins give a bitter taste sensation and are a serious antinutritional factor. Therefore selection of sweet genotypesExpand
Stability of quantitative traits in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa)
TLDR
It was concluded that selection for height, inflorescence size and developmental stage could be satisfactorily performed at an early stage of the breeding programme, however, the measuring techniques available were too insensitive to enable a recommendation to be made. Expand
Genotype × environment interaction in the Andean grain crop quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) in temperate environments.
TLDR
Ten varieties of quinoa with origins ranging from latitude 39° S to 12° S and from sea level to an altitude of 3,800 m were grown in Cambridgeshire, England, in order to assess the extent and nature of genotype × environment interactions and identify genotypes suited for cultivation at temperate latitudes. Expand
The influence of temperature on seed germination rate in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.
TLDR
It was shown that it is possible to define a line, describing germination of quinoa in the range from 10 to 80% as a function of thermal time, which is independent of germination temperature. Expand
Photoperiod-sensitive development phases in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.)
TLDR
Photoperiod had strong effects on all stages of plant reproduction and often acted indirectly, as shown by delayed responses expressed in later phases of development. Expand
