Research on push-pull, a novel cropping system utilizing two companion plants has potential to provide striga, stem borer, and aflatoxin control. One group of companion plants attracts the stem borer and another group of companion plants repels it. The repellent companion plant also controls striga and increases the soil fertility. Maize which grows in the push-pull system has significantly less aflatoxin. Reserach investigates the co-relation of stem borer attacks and companion plants on aflatoxin in the soil.

Evaluation of Efficacy, Acceptability and Palatability of Calcium montmorillonite Clay used to reduce aflatoxin B1 dietary exposure in a in a Crossover Clinical Trial in Kenya. Conducts clinical trials and explores relations between aflatoxin and hepatitis in high risk regions.
This Integrated Global Breeding and Genomics Approach to Intensifying Peanut Production and Quality Project activities include: 1) Development of aflatoxin tolerant varieties (Breeding, screening). 2)Training/ awareness creation about the hazards of aflatoxin in food, feed and commerce. 3) Development of dissemination materials
The study is on the effect of climatic changes and variations on the aspergillus ecology and aflatoxin production in commercial and subsistance farms. This will also help with aflatoxin control in the Cereal production belt.

The Aflatoxin Proficiency Testing and Control in for Eastern and Central Africa (APTECA) program performs 3rd party verification activities to provide interested parties (i.e. millers, other industry, government agencies) with objective evidence of a laboratory’s capability to produce data that is both accurate and repeatable. The program also provides biannual global Proficiency Testing, working controls samples of known aflatoxin concentration for internal quality control, and the APTECA seal (Aflatoxin tested Process verified by APTECA), which can be used to demonstrate a laboratory’s competence to clients, potential customers, accreditation bodies and other external entities.

Dissemination of Pre- and Post-Harvest Technologies for Management of Aflatoxin Contamination of Maize In Kenya for Improved Health and Income aims to: 1. Develop a Coordination Framework for the prevention of aflatoxin Contamination. 2. Enhance the technical capacity of selected officers in aflatoxin contamination preventive strategies both at the National and County governments. 3. Develop a monitoring system of aflatoxin control and management. 4. Develop a National Code of Practice for aflatoxin prevention.
