On Thursday, August 7, take a futuristic look at the latest technology in food and feed crops. Register today and engage with speakers and attendees concentrating on modern plant-breeding methods, plant pathology, global production challenges, agri-chemicals, supply chain purity, and more. Topics and speakers are now posted online. Please book your discounted room at the Hilton Minneapolis through the Minneapolis Housing Bureau.
Whole grains are well established as contributing to a healthy diet. In the case of oats, a key constituent associated with whole grain nutrition is β-glucan. Consequently, there is a need for the accurate and efficient measurement of the trait in oat breeding populations. Newell and colleagues developed and tested a microenzymatic method on 50 oat lines against the existing streamlined method and found a high level of agreement. The modified method provides an efficient means of phenotyping oat germplasm for this important end-use quality trait.
