Abstract

Kafir corn at 20% moisture was fumigated with methyl bromide and ethylene dibromide and hermetically stored for 60 days at 25°-29°C. Molds and bacteria were destroyed. Changes in fat acidity, water-soluble acidity, reducing sugars, amino nitrogen, and weight/volume ratio were retarded. Similar results were obtained with chloropicrin and ethylene oxide. The possibility of cold sterilization of moist grain and storage under aseptic conditions in hermetic storage is discussed.
