Aflatoxins B1 and B2, produced by Aspergillus flavus Link ex. Fries, in corn have received considerable attention. Aflatoxins were a serious problem in the 1977, 1980, and 1983 southeastern corn crops. For many years, it was thought that aflatoxins were produced only in storage. However, surveys done in South Carolina in the early 1970’s clearly demonstrated that aflatoxins can be produced in corn prior to harvest (Anderson et al., 1975). The problem of aflatoxin contamination in the field, in addition to the hazard of aflatoxin buildup in storage, accentuated the need for effective control measures.
