A survey, carried out in Southern Italy on fungi colonizing oilseed rape (Brassicae napua L subspoleifera DC) in the field, showedAlternaria alternata (Fries) Keissler as one of the predominant species. 11 strains ofAlternaria alternata isolated from oilseed rape were cultured on rice to test the ability to produce mycotoxins. All strains produced mycotoxins, including tenuazonic acid (up to 12,000mg/kg), alternariol (up to 200mg/kg), alternariol mortomethyl ether (up to 200mg/kg), altertoxin-l… CONTINUE READING
