Aflatoxin producing potential of Aspergillus flavus isolates from sorghum

Indian Phytopathology 40(4): 550-551

Aflatoxin producing potential of Aspergillus flavus isolates from sorghum

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.
