Présentation
Aflatoxin contamination is a qualitative problem in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) occurring at both pre-and post-harvest stages. These aflatoxins are secondary metabolites produced by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus and have carcinogenic, hepatotoxic, teratogenic and immuno-suppressive effects. Use of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) is a viable and sustainable option in managing aflatoxin problem in groundnut. The objectives of our present study were to evaluate the prevalence of A. flavus infection and aflatoxin contamination in groundnut oil mills/traders of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh (AP) ; differentiate toxigenic and atoxigenic strains using cultural methods ; identify a superior PGPR (Pseudomonas fluorescens) isolate and determine its mode of inhibition on A. flavus and aflatoxin contamination.
