- ... Fungi cause important deteriorations of corms from Crocus sativus L. In order to screen the antifungal properties of this organ to fight such infections, two independent experiments based on the lyophilized and sterilized external (peel) and internal parts of the corm were conducted against five fungi isolated from infected corms during August. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) after 30 ...
