  • Abstract Purpose To transfer the 2S chromosomal fragment(s) of Aegilops kotschyi (2Sk) into the bread wheat genome which could lead to the biofortification of wheat with high grain iron and zinc content. Materials and methods Wheat-Ae. kotschyi 2A/2Sk substitution lines with high grain iron and zinc content were used to transfer the gene/loci for high grain Fe and Zn content into wheat using seed irradiation approach. Results Bread wheat plants derived from 40 krad-irradiated seeds showed the… CONTINUE READING
