Abstract:

Micronutrient malnutrition has reached to alarming situation with billions of people suffering from Iron, Zinc and Vitamin-A deficiencies. Micronutrient supplementation, food fortification, and biofortification are the three basic approaches used to alleviate micronutrient deficiencies. In the present study ten genotypes rich in iron were used. The crop was grown under aerobic condition and harvested rice grains used for the study. Localization of iron in rice grain was done using Perl’s Prussian blue staining of aerobic rice grain sections showed distribution of iron accumulation (blue compound of ferric ferrocyanide) throughout the alureone and subaleurone layers.
