Research Project: Breeding and Testing for Aflatoxin Resistance

Location: Corn Host Plant Resistance Research

Project Number: 6406-21000-013-15
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jun 01, 2012
End Date: Feb 28, 2015

Objective:
Evaluate experimental corn hybrids for resistance to aflatoxin accumulation in several sites.

Approach:
Experimental single cross hybrids produced from germplasm lines selected for resistance to aflatoxin accumulation in Texas, Mississippi, and Georgia will be evaluated at multiple test locations across the southern USA. The hybrids will be inoculated with Aspergillus flavus, and the level of aflatoxin accumulation determined.
