Reconditioning and Disposition of Aflatoxin-contaminated peanut: A Guide for the United States Peanut Producers
Various biotic and abiotic stresses pose a threat to peanut production. Among these stresses, the soilborne fungi Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus are the primary causes of yield reduction and quality deterioration leading to reduced returns and wastage. These notorious plant pathogens contaminate peanut seeds with aflatoxins rendering them unsuitable as food. In this communication, an effort was made to bring together the recommendations on reconditioning and disposing of aflatoxin-contaminated peanuts for US peanut producers.
