Variability for grain iron and zinc content in a diverse range of pearl millet populations



Variability for grain iron and zinc content in a diverse range of pearl millet populations



Crop Improvement: 2, 186-191



Micronutrient malnutrition, resulting from dietary deficiency of iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn), is a widespread food-related health problem, especially in developing countries. Diversified food and crop cultivars with elevated levels of these micronutrients provide the most cost-effective solution to this problem. In an effort to address this problem through genetic improvement, field trials of pearl millet (<i>Pennisetum glaucum</i> (L) R.
