Abstract

Of the many fungi associated with sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) grain mold complex, species of Altemaria, Curvulaha, Drechslera, Fusarium and Phoma are particularly widespread (Navl et al. 1999). Grain Infection by mold fungi can also reduce storage quality and seed germination. Apart from affecting grain quality, species of Fusarium produce mycotoxins leading to several chronic ailments In humans and animals (Bhat et al. 2000). To improve the quality of molded grain, Stenhouse et al. (1998) suggested dehulling to minimize mold damage observed on the pericarp.
