Selenium (Se) is a trace element in the environment and is an indispensable micronutrient for humans. Humans obtain most of their Se through diet (Rayman & Margaret 2008). Despite the nutritional benefits, high Se concentrations in soil can be toxic and poses threats to wildlife, livestock, and local populations (Mehdawi & Pilon-Smits 2012, Schiavon & Pilon-Smits 2017). Presently, the development of Seenriched agricultural products is the most popular and effective way to increase Se intake. Production of Se-enriched agricultural products mainly depends on growing crops in Se-enriched soils.
