We demonstrate that previous estimates of baryosynthesis levels in supergravity models designed to produce completely acceptable cosmological scenarios have been incorrect. With baryosynthesis with light Higgs, produced after primordial inflation with a mass ∼ 1010 GeV, we find nB/nγ {less-than or approximate} 10-5 ε{lunate}, where ε{lunate} is the baryon number asymmetry per decay.
