Aflatoxin production in hazelnuts

, : Aflatoxin production in hazelnuts. Ege Universitesi Ziraat Fakultesi Dergisi 1988; 24(1): 289-297

In this study 140 samples were collected at tree, ground, harvest and storage stages to establish the mould contamination level, mycoflora and aflatoxin content of "Tombul" hazelnut grown in the eastern Black Sea region. The contamination level of moulds on the tree samples was 105 colony/g, increasing for the ground samples and increasing or decreasing, depending on the climate, for the harvest samples.
