marginal, while in sorghum, maize, and other millets it is more pronounced (Tables 7 and 8). Tryp-tophan is also limiting in maize and some millets, while threonine and methionine may also be limiting in some cereals. Protein quality must be considered in relation to total protein content. Furthermore, as protein content is increased, for example by the use of nitrogenous fertilizer, the relative amounts of the essential amino-acids tend to decline as percentages of the protein.
