Aflatoxin producing potential of Aspergillus flavus isolates from sorghum


, : Aflatoxin producing potential of Aspergillus flavus isolates from sorghum. Indian Phytopathology 40(4): 550-551

Of 54 isolates from a sorghum field screened for aflatoxin production, only 18 were toxigenic. Most of these (13) produced aflatoxin B1, while aflatoxin B2 and G1 were produced by 8 and 4 isolates, respectively. None of the isolates was positive for aflatoxin G2. The isolates positive for aflatoxin G1 were also positive for B1. Three isolates produced both B1 and B2.

Of 21 isolates tested on 2 liquid media, 16 were toxigenic and produced aflatoxin B1 as measured by bioassay on okra seedlings and by TLC. Higher yields of the toxin were obtained on 0.7% YES + salt medium. Yields of 0.85-17.2 mg/50 ml were obtain...
