Guideline for sampling and testing for aflatoxin

Guideline for Sampling and Testing for Aflatoxin is a user guide created by the Eastern Africa Grain Council in partnership with the USAID Hub. This guide will assist farmers, traders, processors and certified graders to understand and apply the correct procedure in determination of aflatoxins in grains. It aims at ensuring that farmers, traders, grain handlers, and processors meet the maximum aflatoxin levels, reduce post-harvest wastage and provide safe, appropriate and quality grain to consumers.

The guide is useful to anyone working on grain quality analysis as it outlines the procedures for sample preparation, and can be adapted to train graders or grain inspectors on determination of aflatoxins before grading of grain.
