Paddy* (rice), as a kind of vivo seed, some irreversible changes that influence its eating quality could happen during the storing. As it well known, there have many external factors can either promote or delay such deterioration. Hence, the study on the stored paddy should be able to provide some scientific instructions on the related storage. Based on the investigation of one grain reserve, we employ an artificial climate chamber to simulate the storage of paddy in our research. The selection, identification, growth and prevention of aflatoxin-producing Aspergillus, and the harm caused by the invasion of Aspergillus flavus on the storage and germination of paddy was studied.
*A paddy field is a flooded parcel of arable land used for growing rice and other semiaquatic crops.
