Overview: Aflatoxins are highly toxic, cancer-causing chemicals produced by fungi belonging to the genus Aspergillus. Aspergillus flavus is the most important causal agent of crop aflatoxin contamination. We developed a strategy for preventing aflatoxin contamination based on the use of naturally occurring isolates of A. flauus that lack aflatoxinproducing ability (atoxigenic strains). The atoxigenic strains displace aflatoxin producers during crop development and infection and thereby reduce… CONTINUE READING
