Technical Abstract: Rapid, non-destructive, detection of aflatoxin contaminated and mold infestation in whole kernels of corn will be discussed. Methods investigated were near infrared spectroscopy and visible and near infrared imaging. The near infrared spectra were used to optimize a commercial sorting machine for separating aflatoxin contaminated kernels.
