ARS biological science aid Alix McCloskey and University of Arizona scientist Ramon Jaime-Garcia examine wheat kernels containing a strain of Aspergillus flavus that acts as a biocontrol agent against strains of A. flavus that produce aflatoxin. The kernels are sterile, so they won't germinate when applied in a field; instead, they will be a food source for the biocontrol agent to establish itself.
