Green mold spores (Penicillium digitatum) were placed on wood-craft sticks and placed 14 locations in the treated room and 4 locations in the untreated control room. The degreening room was about 200,000 cu ft in capacity. KL-615/SaniSol at a rate of 8.2 oz/gallons, gallons applied = ? Relative humidity = ? After treatment, the sticks were collected in sterile glass tubes, returned to the USDA lab in Parlier, rinsed with sterile water, and the percent germination determined after they were placed on potato dextrose agar for 24 h and about 150 spores per stick were examined.
