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