The development of Penicillium roqueforti on buckwheat seeds proceeds roughly into four steps, involving a lag phase and three growth phases. First, it appears as a spore germination and external colonization of the grains by the mycelium. Then, mainly external sporulation and internal colonization of the seeds occur and finally internal sporulation takes place. The Stoichiometry of the growth and the sporulation is established. Kinetic experiments performed in a fixed bed reactor show that the… CONTINUE READING
