Abstract:

Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a major staple food crop for most of world’s population but unfortunately with low folate content when compared to other plant based foods. Folate is an essential micronutrient in human diet and its deficiency causes neural tube defects, coronary heart disease and certain forms of cancer, impaired cognitive functions. Hence, screening and evaluation of available rice germplasm accessions for folate content is the basic step to identify folate rich accessions for further studies and mapping of QTLs/genes associated with folate content to improve its content through molecular breeding especially marker assisted selection.


Keywords: food crop, Folate, rice germplasm
