Genetic variability and genotype x environment interactions for kernel iron and zinc concentrations in maize (Zea mays) genotypes
Micronutrient enrichment in the major staple food crops is an important breeding goal in view of the extensive problem of 'hidden hunger' caused by micronutrient malnutrition. Kernel iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) concentrations ...
Genetic variability and stability for kernel iron and zinc concentration in maize (Zea mays L.) genotypes
Evaluation of kernel iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) of 67 diverse maize genotypes grown during 2006?08 indicated significant variation for both the micronutrients. Kernel Fe concentration during 2006 varied from 20.38?43.79 mg/kg, ...
Genetic variability for kernel B-carotene and utilization of crtRB1 3'TE gene for biofortification in maize (Zea mays L.)
Carotenoids are the major sources of dietary precursor of vitamin A and act as potential antioxidant besides preventing diseases such as night blindness in humans. Vitamin A deficiency is a global problem, but is particularly ...
