Abstract
CERN experiment WA89 has studied charmed particles produced by a $\Sigma^{-}$ beam at 340GeV/c on nuclear targets. Production of particles which have light quarks in common with the beam is compared to production of those which do not. Considerable production asymmetries between $\mathrm{D}^-$ and $\mathrm{D}^+$,$\mathrm{D}_\mathrm{s}^-$ and $\mathrm{D}_\mathrm{s}^+$ and $\Lambda_{\mathrm{c}}$ and $\bar{\Lambda_\mathrm{c}}$are observed. The results are compared with pion beam data and with theoretical calculations.
