Colour changes in pulses fumigated with different metal phosphide formulations

Gerhard Jakob, Renate Steuerwald & Dennis Ryman
Many phosphine-emitting products are used globally to control insect pests in dried vegetables, grains and pulses. However, variation in phosphide formulations is associated with colour change in many pulses. This study evaluated the effect of fumigation using Mg3P2 containing ammonium carbamate; AlP containing no ammonium carbamate and pure ammonium carbamate on colour of diferrent pulses. Different pulses showed different reactions towards fumigation with phosphine. A distinctly darker discolouration was observed in broad beans and lentils...
