Abstract

Kernels representing six inbred corn lines were soaked in sterile distilled water for 24 and 48 hours, with and without aeration during soaking. When the kernels were plated on a nutritive medium following such treatments, frequency of appearance of Fusarium moniliforme on kernels was directly associated with longer periods of soaking, and with continuous aeration provided during soaking. Such variations in recovery of the organisms from the kernel, depending on isolation procedure used, strongly emphasize the fact that failure to isolate a fungus from host tissue does not necessarily mean the fungus is absent.
