Aflagoggles For Screening Aflatoxin Contamination In Maize


<li>Survey existing methods for low-cost, rapid, and non-invasive screening of aflatoxin contamination in maize.</li>
<li>Survey current applications using narrow bandwidth filtering.</li>
<li>Identify two potential narrow bandwidth spectral bands for aflatoxin screening.</li>
<li>Develop feasible method to use the identified narrow bandwidth spectral bands and provide initial design of the AflaGoggles.</li>
<li>Prototype construction of the AflaGoggles and the development of screening procedures with the prototype.</li>
<li>Implement initial trials of the AflaGoggles to test their feasibility in a real world situation and also for continuous improvement of the screening procedures.</li></ol></p>
