Abstract

Four cultivars of sorghum were artijicially inoculated with Fusarium moniliforme conidia at powering and bagged. These samples along with their untreated controls were harvested at physiological maturity and 2 weeks after physiological maturity. The grains obtained from both the treatments were studied for their milling, malting and popping characteristics. Grains harvested at physiological maturity stage possessed superior milling and malting characteristics whereas late-harvested grains exhibited better popping characteristics. Milling and popping reduced the seed mycoflora considerably.
