  • Abstract Groundnut ( Arachis hypogaea L.) is susceptible to pre- and post-harvest infections by Aspergillus spp. Aflatoxin B 1 (AFB 1 ), is the contaminant produced by the fungus in infected grains posing a threat to human and animal health. This paper reports of a study undertaken in Malawi to determine the occurrence and distribution of Aflatoxigenic Aspergilli in the soil and AFB 1 contamination in groundnuts. A total of 1397 groundnut samples collected from farm homesteads, local markets… CONTINUE READING
