aflatoxin in peanuts

Categorised under:

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
Kernels contaminated with aflatoxin bring a reduced price and, in cases of very high levels, may be downgraded to oil quality... High soil temperatures and drought during flowering and podfill are the major causes of aflatoxin contamination... Leaving peanuts in the windrow to dry to 13% moisture increases the risk of aflatoxin because of the chance of rain re-wetting the crop...

Research trials show early harvesting (or cutting) can significantly reduce aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns... A number of factors influence the decision on when to cut a peanut crop, including: maturity of the crop peg strength and general crop health; if the crop is highly diseased the grower is advised to cut early to reduce harvest losses weather outlook; hasten or delay cutting if wet weather is imminent risk attitude of grower soil type differences may cause variations in maturity within a block machinery logistics; if a small acreage can be cut or harvested this will spread harvesting over a longer period... DEEDI trials conducted over the trial period of three seasons consistently showed that in years, or situations, where there is a high-aflatoxin risk, early crop cutting can help to minimise aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns...
