Aspergillus flavus has two morphotypes, the S strain and the L strain, that differ in aflatoxin-producing ability and other characteristics. Fungal communities on maize dominated by the S strain of A. flavus have repeatedly been associated with acute aflatoxin poisonings in Kenya, where management tools to reduce aflatoxin levels in maize are needed urgently. A. flavus isolates (n = 290) originating from maize produced in Kenya and belonging to the L strain morphotype were tested for aflatoxin… CONTINUE READING
