White winter wheat was infected with Fusarium graminearum and the concentrations of deoxynivalenol and ergosterol were measured. Deoxynivalenol and ergosterol concentrations in the spikes peaked (9.5 and 47 ppm, respectively) 6 weeks afterinoculation and declined (by 73 and 16%, respectively) thereafter. The significance of this decline is discussed.
