Survival of rhizobia on seed is generally poor and desiccation is a major factor affecting cell viability... A review of current literature reveals that rhizobia has some inherent mechanisms for desiccation tolerance... Survival of rhizobia after growth in broth cultures was compared with that of cells extracted from peat...

In 2008, earthy, musty off-flavours were detected in peanuts in north Queensland, which led to over $1 million of product downgrades... The actinomycetes produce volatile compounds that contaminate the stored nuts, and cause the musty, earthy off-flavours... Contamination of peanuts can occur in the field during the growing season and also during post-harvest storage and handling...

The research has made a significant contribution to our understanding of the mechanisms underlying these traits, identified novel strategies for further or more rapid improvements, and provides a solid foundation for both further research and better management of defects that result in downgrading of quality prior to harvest.. Annual screening of advanced lines from Australian breeding programs suggests little improvement in sprouting resistance despite breeders having had access to resistant germplasm and quantitative trait loci (QTL) information for a considerable period... Our work in Brachypodium presents a novel opportunity to use an undomesticated wild grass to identify novel sources of high dormancy germplasm...

" Print the page Marketing and use of mould-affected grain often presents a dilemma for growers and livestock producers, and usually comes down to how much the grain should be discounted... The first group is ergot alkaloids, produced by sorghum ergot growing prior to harvest, and the second is aflatoxins, which are mainly produced if sorghum is stored with high moisture content...
