The observed incidence of fungi was low, except for the storage fungi
Also Sufaida compounds were found effective against some fungal pathogens like storage fungi
Aspergillus flavus Link and A.
Grains can be contaminated by spores of storage fungi
during harvest, transport and handling operations .
Associated food-hazards: storage fungi
and mites in poppy, mustard, lettuce and wheat.
The use of SMB is known against phytopathogenic fungi and bacteria, but little is known about these storage fungi
in shrimp (GOES et al.
Most of the storage fungi
are species of Aspergillus and Penicillium.
Tuite and Christensen (1957) have even noted that inoculation of ripe plants with spores of storage fungi
did not increase the percentage of seed infected and they also found that storage fungi
associated with 1 out of 300 samples of wheat grain collected.
Among the storage fungi
cited are Aspergillus flavus  and Penicillium sp [7,4].
The minimum temperature for growth of storage fungi
is about 40[degrees]F (4[degrees]C), with optimum temperatures from 80 to 90[degrees]F (27-32[degrees]C).

These conditions do not necessarily occur in a tropical environment and colonization by storage fungi
will frequently occur affecting, for example, lipid metabolism of soybean seed (Lisker et al.
Scarification or punctures of the pericarp of corn seed allow rapid invasion by storage fungi
, leading to reduced germination (Christensen & Lopez, 1963).
