Groundnuts stored and sold in Ahmednagar city and nearby villages were analysed for the presence of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), aflatoxin B2 (AFB2), aflatoxin G1 (AFG1) and aflatoxin G2 (AFG2). Of 96 samples analysed, 75 samples showed the presence of AF...

Since 1979, a total of 28 410 samples of groundnuts intended for export were analysed for aflatoxin contamination. In 6.3% of samples an aflatoxin content >5 micro g/kg was detected. These samples were rejected for export. Analysis of groundnut...

In a study of 4 Virginia and 4 Spanish varieties at 2 sites, preharvest pod damage, by insects or microorganisms, led to increased aflatoxin contamination during storage. Virginia types were more easily damaged than Spanish types at both sites. Sc...
