Aflatoxin production in food crops and its management

, : Aflatoxin production in food crops and its management. Perspectives in phytopathology: 79-91

In this review the occurrence of aflatoxin in food crops and the magnitude of the problem, aflatoxin production (by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus) under different conditions with special reference to pre-harvest contamination and the management of aflatoxin contamination (including plant breeding) are discussed.
