Abstract

An ideal future crop for human health should be rich in essential mineral elements but with less toxic elements in the edible parts. However, it is a challenge to balance plant growth and nutrient requirement for humans. This articlefocuses on recent progress made in rice on understanding the transport mechanisms of mineral elements that are closely related to human health. The authors also discuss how to manipulate mineral transporters for nutritious and safe crop production and provide some perspectives toward breeding future crops for human health.
