Two agro-ecological zones in Kenya were selected to compare the distribution in maize of Aspergillus spp. and their toxigenicity. These were Nandi County, which is the main maize growing region in…
Dietary aflatoxin exposure and impaired growth in young children from Kisumu District, Kenya: Cross sectional study.
The number of children who were wasting and were being fed on flour contaminated with mycotoxins was highly significant (P = 0.002), and some of the children were exceeding the advisory limit.

Identification Key for Aspergillus Species Isolated from Maize and Soil of Nandi County, Kenya
Aspergillus section Flavi was most frequent during the isolation process and dominated with Aspergillius flavus from both the maize and soil and Morphological characteristics remain the primary tool for detection and identification of As pergillus species.

Biocontrol of Aspergillus and Fusarium Mycotoxins in Africa: Benefits and Limitations
Biocontrol should be used in conjunction with good agricultural practices coupled with good postharvest management to significantly reduce mycotoxins in the African continent.

Genetic and Toxigenic Variability within Aspergillus flavus Population Isolated from Maize in Two Diverse Environments in Kenya
The genetic variability among 109 A. flavus isolates previously recovered from maize sampled from a known aflatoxin-hotspot and the major maize-growing area in the Rift Valley (Kenya) is analyzed to determine their toxigenic potential.
