117 Symposium--Limiting Harmful and Enhancing Nutritive Elements in Crops

Oral Session
C09 Biomedical, Health-Beneficial & Nutritionally Enhanced Plants
This session will explore efforts through crop management and genetics to either reduce harmful elements such as arsenic in foods or enhance nutrive elements such as iron and zinc. Remediation technologies for metal-contaminated soils will also be welcomed.
