Effect of insect infestation on stored grain. I.studies on soft wheat



Effect of insect infestation on stored grain. I.studies on soft wheat



Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture 5(1): 51-54



The results are given of investigations in India on the physical and biochemical changes in grain that result from infestation by Calandra oryzae (L.), Trogoderma granarium Everts and Ephestia cautella (Wlk.). Samples of soft wheat with an initial moisture content of 10.32 per cent. and a viability of about 89.7 per cent. were infested with adults of one species, stored at a temperature of 78-84 degrees F. and 48-62 per cent. relative humidity for about six months and examined once a month.
