Abstract:

The common oat (Avena sativa) is a cereal grain species considered to be the most economical and the richest source of the soluble dietary fiber. Soluble fiber content in oats is the main reason of the valuable effects of the crop. It is. In the present study, the estimation of β - glucan content was carried out on a total of 95 genotypes of oat which were procured from NBPGR, New Delhi. The isolation and estimation of the β - glucan content was done by using the alkaline extraction method. The β - glucan content in the studied genotypes ranged from 0.43 % to 6.90%. Only 4 germplasm lines had significantly higher β - glucan over standard check OL 10 (5.79%). These were the exotic germplasm lines viz. EC 537851, EC 246158, EC 528874, EC 372463. These could serve as the donors for higher β - glucan content in the oat breeding programmes.
