Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to analyze the variation in lysine content in thirty six durum wheat genotypes under irrigation conditions. The cereal proteins are low in lysine one of the essential amino acids that cannot be synthesized by humans and must therefore be obtained entirely from dietary sources. Thus, lysine content constitutes an important feature for defining the nutritive value of flour obtained from cereals. Lysine content was found maximum in WHD 954 (3.53 g/16g N) followed by UAS 448 (3.52 g/16g N) and minimum was observed in MACS 3944 (2.05 g/16g N). These genotypes were found promising and may be used in crossing programme in order to improve grain quality.
