This study relates preharvest and harvest practises to postharvest quality of maize in Benin, West Africa. Fungal infection and aflatoxin levels were evaluated in 300 farmers' stores in four agro-ecological zones over 2 years (1993-1995), at the beginning of storage (sample A) and 6 months later (sample B). Aspergillus flavus infected 10-20% of the kernels in sample A (1993-1994). In sample B, 54-79% of the kernels were infected with A. flavus. In 1994-1995, A. flavus infection was higher in… Expand
