AFLATOXIN CONTROL IN PISTACHIOS: BIOCONTROL USING ATOXIGENIC STRAINS

Investigators
Campbell, Bruce
Institutions
University of California - Davis
Start date
2003
End date
2008
Objective
Reduce contamination of pistachios by aflatoxin through control of A. flavus. The control of A. flavus will be attempted through dispersal of an atoxigenic strain, AF36, as a biocompetitor to displace toxigenic strains indigenous to pistachio orchards.
