Genetic bio-fortification of cereals from a plant breeding perspective

January-March 2023 - Vol 15 Num. 1

Genetic “biofortification” presents an opportunity to provide sustainable and cost effective solution to the perennial problem of ‘hidden hunger’ prevalent in most marginalized regions of the world. Diets in households across many developing countries typically consist of high calorie crops which...
