In Niger, 25 peanut lines including germplasm, advanced A. flavus resistant breeding lines, and cultivars from West Africa, were tested at three sites - Sadore, Bengou and Maradi - during the 1989, 1990, and 1991 rainy seasons (Waliyar and Hassan, 1993). Seeds from these sites were tested for A. flavus contamination, aflatoxin content and the average proportion of contaminated seeds. Aflatoxin content of the seeds ranged from 1-750 ng/g and 5 to 37% of the seeds in a seed lot were contaminated. Total aflatoxin contamination in a sample generally increased with the percentage of contaminated seeds in the sample.
