Aflatoxin producing strains of Aspergillus grow on soybeans thereby contaminating the latter through secretion of the toxin. Investigations dealing with either soybean seed germination or intact seedling growth responses to aflatoxin (B1) are lacking. Similarly, a possible interaction of aflatoxins with phosphate in the germination and elongation of both(More)
Although various animal tissues are used for bioassay of aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2), a rapid bioassay dependent upon a plant part's response does not exist. Both pollen germination (G) and tube elongation (TE) were enhanced in a 3.0 mM KH2PO4 (K)-containing but AFB1-lacking, modified Dickinson's medium. The B1 did not affect G when K was withheld but K(More)
