The use of essential oils applied as fumigants to control mycotoxigenic fungi attacking stored grain


, : The use of essential oils applied as fumigants to control mycotoxigenic fungi attacking stored grain. Hassadeh 74(1): 25-27, 109

Essential oils extracted from Origanum vulgare plants (grown in Israel) and applied as fumigants (at 2.0-2.5 p.p.b. for 24 h) inhibited mycelial growth and spore germination in Aspergillus flavus, A. ochraceus and A. niger. Essential oils extracted from Coridothymus capitatus (at 3 p.p.b.) inhibited spore germination of the 3 fungi, but were less effective at inhibiting mycelial growth.
