Abstract:

Zinc and Iron are essential micronutrient for both plant growth and human health but it is often reported to be deficient in regions where rice is use as staple food. Although significant progresses are made in understanding genetic and molecular mechanism of micronutrient acquisition but these need to be characterize to increase the bioavailability of these micronutrients. Biofortification is suggested to be a sustainable and cost-effective approach in this perspective and for that combination of various agronomic and genetic strategies should be put in place without delay.
