Aflatoxyns are a great challenge for corn growers in Rwanda

Post by admin » May 16th, 2019, 1:06 pm

According to the 'New Times' (https://www.newtimes.co.rw/) local corn dealers in Rwanda are increasingly buying corn in Zambia, because of the high level of aflatoxin infestation of the local corn crop.

'maize with Aflatoxins was coming largely from farmers who are not in cooperatives because they lack skills, plus storage and drying facilities.' [..]
