Laboratory methods of fumigation of food commodities and surface sterilization of grains have been described. Out of eight fumigants tested ethylene oxide, methyl bromide, sulphur dioxide, EDB-MB mixture could give a hundred per cent control of internal fungi of sorghum. Ethylene oxide reduced the viability totally, while sulphur dioxide at 64 mg/l maintained 75 per cent viability. There was increase in the germination percentage over the control with the treatments of ethylene dibromide and phosphine.
