One culture ofF avenaceum, 4 cultures ofF oxysporum, and 11 cultures of Fsambucinum were isolated from soil samples of pasture in New Zealand in 1987. All cultures, when grown on rice media and fed to rats caused a weight loss in rats as well as toxic signs including hemorrhaging and congestion, uterine enlargement, and hematuria. 6 out of 16 cultures caused death in rat feeding tests.F oxysporum #1 killed rats (feeding test) within 5-12hrs. 10 cultures produced zearalenone (19 to 8,849 ppm), 8… CONTINUE READING
