One of the main challenges for exporters of seeds and grains in west Africa is complying with maximum levels of aflatoxin. Aflatoxin contamination contributes to pre- and post-harvest losses in many crops and it also prevents commodities from meeting international, regional, local regulations, and standards governing agricultural trade and food safety.
To help combat the high level of aflatoxin in Maize, sorghum, and groundnuts, the African Union Commission has embarked on a program to coordinate efforts at a continental and national level in aflatoxin prevention and control.
