Isolation of mycotic toxigenic strains and research of fumonisin in maize, sorghum, soya and feedstuff samples
An experimental investigation concerning the presence of toxigenic moulds in maize, sorghum, soya and feedstuffs has been carried out. Positive responses for mycetic strains referable to the genus Alternaria, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Fusarium, Mucor, Penicillium, Rhizopus, Scopulariopsis, Trichoderma have been obtained. Particularly, strains of Fusarium moniliforme isolated from maize and feedstuffs were highly toxigenic, and they were able to synthesize Fumonisin B1 (from 300 to 650 ppm). The study will be carried on with the aim to define cultural and environmental conditions which favour mycetic growth as well as toxin production.
