In view of the observed safety to the consuming animals and the feasibility for its industrial production,
endophytic culture extract derived from the stargrass endophyte Calcarisporium sp. 0083-1 should be a
promising candidate for new preservatives being required by the feed industry if its accumulative toxicity could
be eventually negligible or acceptable.
