Young, H.E. (1948) Bluestained case timber and mould rots in hen eggs. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 5 (3). pp. 141-147.



It is demonstrated that mould rots in eggs can be artificially produced by infection with spores of a sap-staining fungus isolated from case timber. Early treatment of eggs with the sodium salt of salicyl anilide was shown to be an effective preventive of decay in eggs caused by moulds under the conditions of the experiment but was ineffective against bacterial rots. Trials involving various methods of handling showed that under normal export conditions bluestained hoop pine (Araucaria cunninghamii) timber has no effect on the quality of eggs when it is used as a case material.
