Mycoflora and germination of maize seed

Mycoflora and germination of maize seed

Journal of Agriculture of the University of Puerto Rico 73(2): 115-125

During Mar.-May 1983, 6 populations of hard endosperm opaque maize and 2 local normal maize populations were studied at Lajas and Isabela, Puerto Rico. Maize plants were inoculated with pink mould (Fusarium moniliforme 7-10 d after anthesis, sprayed with benomyl at the same time or 14 d later or not treated. Insect damage caused by Heliothis zea and visible mould were assayed on cobs before shelling. Seeds were then assayed for internal mycoflora.
