Field incidence of mycotoxins in commercial popcorn and potential environmental influences

Abstract

Popcorn ear damage by insects and mycotoxin levels in kernels were monitored in several commercial popcorn fields in central Illinois over a 4-year period. Aflatoxin was rare, but fumonisin and deoxynivalenol (DON) were commonly encountered each year, and occurred at mean levels in fields up to 1.7 mg/kg (sample max. 2.77 mg/kg) and 1.9 mg/kg (sample max. 2… (More)
