Chromosome behaviour and fertility in induced polyploids of grain amaranths.
Many similar species of amaranth
(often called "pigweed," above, left) grow throughout North America, terrorizing gardeners and farmers in every corner of the land.
Studies conducted in Kenya [5, 6] show that amaranth
grain has a good level of iron and other nutrients and may, therefore, be a choice to use for complementary food formulation at the household level to address widespread micronutrient deficiencies.
