Biocontrol by competitive inhibition using atoxigenic Aspergillus flavus strains has been shown to be an effective method for controlling aflatoxin production in peanuts, maize and cottonseed. Selecting biocontrol strains is not straightforward, as it is difficult to assess fitness for the task without expensive field trials. Reconstruction experiments have been generally performed under laboratory conditions to investigate the biological mechanisms underlying the efficacy of atoxigenic strains… CONTINUE READING
