Various methods for determining inoculum concentration were used including plate counts, turbidity measurements, Most Probable Number (MPN) and hemacytometer cell counts.
Sc] recovered on first passage represents the residual inoculum rather than de novo Pr[P.
The three studied parameters were temperature (25-35[degrees]C), inoculums size (5-15% v/w) and moisture content (40-60%) [3].
Differences in rating distributions between inoculum types were assessed using the Kruskal-Wallis test ([alpha] = 0.
These results imply that keeping a field free of a susceptible crop for a year should dramatically reduce the density of pathogen inoculum -- provided there is no significant reproduction on weeds or a rotation crop -- but that the pathogen will likely persist at a low level for at least several years.
5, 47, 50, 60, 70, 80 % dry weight (DW), the incubation time were 0, 24, 48, 72, 96, 120, 144 h, the inoculum sizes were 5, 10, 15, 20 % v/w, the media thickness were 0.
Test articles are cut to size and placed in a volume of inoculum containing phosphate buffer and a known concentration of bacteria (E.
The animals (n = 60) included in the experimental study were divided into 10 groups with group 1 serving as controls and receiving no inoculum.
The bacteria's initial inoculum level did not change significantly after a pressure treatment of 500 MPa for 1 min at 20 C, or after 28 days of storage in the juice at 4 C.
In this paper we have utilized cellulose rich, Tapioca fiber waste via anaerobic fermentation--systematic dozing of methanogen rich inoculum, to improve Tapioca fiber processing.
