Gibberellic acid production by Fusarium moniliforme on lupin seed extract.

Fusarium moniliforme grown on extract obtained from lupin (Lupinus angustifolius L.) seeds effectively produced gibberellic acid (GA3). The extract used at the concentration of 8.3-0.41% d.w. inhibited the fungal growth. As much as 0.35-0.40 g of GA3 per liter was produced on the 2% extract. The latter medium competes effectively with other media used so… CONTINUE READING
