Inhibitory effects of two fungistatic preparations (A and B) and of propionic acid were tested in a complete feedmixture for broiler chickens (starter mixture). The water content of this mixture was 25.4 %, environmental temperature was 24-degrees-C and relative air humidity 90 %. Propionic acid, which has a high fungistatic effect, served as a standard. The composition of the preparation A was as follows: propionic acid, acetic acid, sorbic acid, citric acid and calcium propionate. The preparation B contained: sorbic acid, citric acid and calcium propionate. Examinations were performed in a naturally contaminated and subsequently sterilized (25 kGy) feed mixture
