Aflatoxin in groundnut, problems and remedies

, : Aflatoxin in groundnut, problems and remedies. Seeds and Farms 15(2): 12-15

A general account is given of the problem of aflatoxin production by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus in stored groundnuts. Among the factors affecting production are temp., moisture content, atmospheric gases and fungal isolates. Brief accounts are given of the chemical composition of aflatoxins, aflatoxins as carcinogens and the natural occurrence of aflatoxins. A. flavus also caused aflarot disease of groundnut which is seedborne and results in infected seeds becoming rancid.
