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

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