Mycoflora and Aflatoxin-Producing Strains of Aspergillus flavus in Greenhouse-Cultivated Green Beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
Abstract:The fungal contamination in green beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) was studied according to their location and height during growth in greenhouses. The genera most frequently isolated were Aureobasidium, Aspergillus, Penicillium, and Alternaria. Height and location did not have a significant influence on the fungal contamination of the beans. A strain of A. flavus was isolated which had the capacity to synthesize aflatoxins in vitro.
