All treatments initially decreased the counts of bacteria and moulds. Growth of these microorganisms was prevented throughout the 6-month storage period by methylene-bis-propionate and for 5 months by gaseous anhydrous ammonia. Liquid anhydrous ammonia prevented mould growth for 4 months, while bacterial counts increased to pretreatment numbers after 1 month but did not increaseCollection: AGRIS Collection
