The analysis of genetic relationships amongst tef varieties is an important component of improvement programs because it provides information about the genetic diversity of the crop and sets a platform for stratified sampling of breeding populations. Erayrostis for the casual reader.

The severity of these nutritional deficiencies is modulated by different factors: This leads us to conclude that teff is an excellent cereal to prevent the aforementioned health problems associated with less consumption of calcium. The nutritional value of tef grain is comparable to that of other major cereals.

It has been suggested that Eragrostis pilosa is closely related to tef while E. Bultosa reported that the grain protein contents of 13 teff varieties are ranged from 8. However, it is likely that there exists variability within the tef germplasm pool, and certain tef genotypes could adopt some strategies such as osmotic adjustment to resist these constraints. Sometimes the flour is also used for making porridge, kitta unleavened breadand atmit or muk gruel Selinus Phenolics are notable for their antioxidant activity, which appears to be beneficial in terms of prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer Awika and Rooney Crop Variety Register Issue No.
