Selenium in bread and durum wheats grown under a soil supplementation regime in actual field conditions, determined by cyclic and radiochemical neutron activation analysis. 

This work focuses on the ability of bread and durum wheat to accumulate selenium (Se) via a soil-addition procedure at sowing time. Total Se in mature-grain samples was determined by neutron activation analysis (cyclic and radiochemical). in Journal of Radioanalytical and Nuclear Chemistry 304 (1): 139-143.

Selenium characterization of the Portuguese bread-wheat archival collection.

The INIAV-Elvas wheat collection has always been an invaluable asset in studies of agronomic and/or genetic development of wheat lines, as well as providing a frame of reference for the nutritional evolution of Portuguese wheat crops. This work addresses the status of selenium (Se) in a pool of 46 accessions of bread wheat. in Crop...

Characterization of selenium-enriched wheat by agronomic biofortification.

Cereals are far from being the main sources of Se on a content basis, but they are likely the major contributors to intake on a dietary basis. To assess their potential to assimilate and biotransform Se, bread and durum wheat were enriched with Se through foliar and soil addition at an equivalent field rate of...
