SUMMARY

Four different methods of inoculation for Penicillium italicum, the causal agent of decay in Citrus sinensis Osb. fruits, were compared in relation to their efficiency in symptoms development.

The inoculation methods consisted of: a) injection of 0,2 ml of a spore suspension (106 spores/ml) at 2 mm within the skin of the fruit; b) 0.2 ml of inoculum (106 spores/ml) applied in a little cotton hall which was placed in a hole of 5 mm diameter by 2 mm depth; c) 0.2 ml of inoculum (106 spores/ml) applied in the hole and covered with scotch tape; and d) the inoculum (3-5 ml/fruit) was sprayed on the surface of the fruits.

The first two treatments were more efficient than the last two, and treatment b was the best. The fourth treatment was the worst one, showing that the fungus has as small capacity of penetration in the orange fruit.
