Maize and Groundnut Aflatoxin Survey - 2012

The project’s objectives are: (a) to identify, the best atoxigenic A. flavus strains for biocontrol; (b) to formulate the best atoxigenic A. flavus strains into a commercial product, and engage in product stewardship for market development and local manufacturing; (c) to enhance the technical capacity of national partners, extension services, farmers, and other participants in the maize and groundnut value chain for incorporating biocontrol as a component of integrated aflatoxin management; and (d) create awareness among stakeholders along the maize and groundnut value chain of aflatoxin and its health implications; and strategies to manage aflatoxin.
