INTRODUCTION The problems associated with mycotoxin contamination of grains are worldwide. Mycotoxic moulds generally attack the kernels of grain robbing the nutrients and lower the fat, protein and vitamin content of the grain. The mould also often changes the colour of the grains, the consistency/texture and often imparts an odour that causes feed refusal in animals. Aflatoxins are produced by ...

Dr., this is encouraging, especially in the field of mycotoxicology particularly aflatoxicosis. This will be of importance in putting up appropriate structures in managing aflatoxin-related challenges in terms of moisture, storage conditions and optimum temperatures, especially for feeds and food. Can such research be done in other parts of the world like Kenya where I come from? Thanks.

Thanks, bunch Doctor, this research will help to minimize poultry diseases outbreak emanated from feed contamination.
It will also help to reduce nutritional loss of feed ingredients while in storage.
I'm very grateful.
