      Goals / Objectives 1)Generate transgenic crops expressing improved nutritional quality. 2) Develop methods to identify unanticipated effects of transgene introduction on gene, protein, and metabolite expression in as early stages as possible during the development of transgenic crops modified for improved nutritional quality (i.e., after stable transformation). This book collects 48 highly interdisciplinary articles describing how genomics improves our capacity to characterize and harness natural and artificially induced variation in order to boost crop productivity and provide consumers with high-quality food. This book will be an invaluable reference for all those interested in managing, mining and. Appearance, taste and nutritional quality, along with enhanced production control, are among the plant traits that could be improved. Many of California's most important crops, such as grapes, nuts and tree fruits have slower experimental and production establishment cycles than the large acreage, annual crops of the Midwest.

Besides being energy-dense and carbohydrate-rich, these crops. In its broadest definition the nutritional value of a foodstuff should also include consideration of the sensory properties of the product, since this is a principal driver in food choice and taste is one of the most important measures by which the consumer judges product quality (Torjusen et al., ; see also Ch 6).

Improved taste and flavour are often cited as being motivators for consumers in the purchase of organic foods Cited by: Get this from a library. Improvement of nutritional quality of food crops: a state of the art report. [V Silano; H C Bansul; Alessandro Bozzini].

IMPROVEMENT OF FOOD NUTRITION Advancement in agricultural biotechnology has allowed the exploration and development of technologies to correct the deficiency and improve the nutritional quality of food crops. Quality aspects of food crops are traits that have globally important market economic and health repercussions in the current climate of food security.

Grain legumes have high potential for the nutritional quality improvement of foods, but limited data on manipulating seed quality is available as the primary focus has been hitherto on.

Several factors can directly or indirectly affect the nutritional quality of crops. Among these are soil factors, such as pH, available nutrients, texture, organic matter content and soil-water relationships; weather and climatic factors, including temperature, rainfall and light intensity; the crop and cultivar; postharvest handling and storage; and fertilizer applications Cited by: Download free PDF of best NCERT Solutions, Class 9, Biology, CBSE- Improvement in Food Resources.
