Glutamic acid decarboxylase activity (GADA), as determined by Sandstedt and Blish pressuremeters, is introduced as an index of deterioration of artificially dried and stored corn. The method is rapid and simple compared with previous techniques used. The high positive correlation between viability and log GADA (r = +0.949***; 60 d.f.) was significantly higher (at 0.1% level) than that involving fat acidity (r = -0.433***; 60 d.f.).
