The seed mycoflora and malting characteristics of 26 sorghum cultivars were evaluated. The fungi Aspergillus jlavus, Curvularia lunata, Cladosporium dadosporioides and Fusarium monilijorme were dominant on the seeds of all the cultivars. The seeds were steeped in excess water for· 24 h, and the alpha-amylase of malts was assayed after 3 days of germination. The moisture eontents of 24 h steeped grains varied from 32·4 to 43·4 %, and the samples with higher moisture contents on steeping exhibited higher incidences of mould infection during germination. The alphaamylase activities of malt samples ranged from 88 to 864 maltose units, and the malts of the samples with heavy mould infection during germination exhibited slightly higher amylase activities (I' == 0-4033),
