Detection of microbiological problems in a mixture of seeds : what to do ?
A simple routine bacteriological analysis of a mixture ready to be marketed which invalidate the results obtained upstream, and it is a whole batch of high added value product which can be brought to destruction. Indeed, each seed type reacts differently to heat treatment and it is usually impossible to obtain a good reduction of the microbiological load without damaging one […]Read More →
