Better Nitrogen Nutrition Results in Enhanced Uptake, Transport and Grain Deposition of Zinc in Wheat

Abstract

Biofortification of wheat with Zn in order to alleviate the associated health problems is a global challenge. Based on the hypothesis that nitrogen (N) nutrition may affect the transporter proteins and other nitrogenous molecules which are involved in root uptake, root-to-shoot transport, remobilization and grain accumulation as well as grain localization of Zn, the potential of N fertilization in biofortification of wheat grain was investigated.
