Technical Abstract: This poster describes the testing of natural compounds against problematic post harvest fungi using the disc assay as a screening method. The results of various compounds are shown via the formation of a prominent zone of inhibition. Comparisons are also shown of non-responsive compounds to Penicillium digitatum and geotrichum citri-aurantii. The clarity of using this method for step-wise dilutions of the anti-fungal compounds is shown.
