Relationship of response to accelerated aging and kernel infection by Aspergillus flavus in corn

Relationship of response to accelerated aging and kernel infection by Aspergillus flavus in corn

Fitopatologia Venezolana 7(2): 47-50

To determine the relationship between the infection by Aspergillus flavus and kernel deteriotion induced by the accelerated aging test, a trial was conducted using two groups of corn that differed in their response to infection by this fungus. The percentage of germination of these groups 4 and 7 days after the accelarated aging test was determined. Significant differences were found in the germination (P lt 0,05) resulting higher in the average of resistant genotypes (21,5 and 48,9%), than in the susceptible ones (17,9 and 44,7%) for 4 and 7 days after the test respectively. However, differences were not large enough to conclude that the accelerated aging procedure could be used to select genotypes resistant to kernel infection A. flavus.
