PACA aflatoxin sampling and testing protocol training on 12-13 December 2017 in Dakar, Senegal

The African Union Commission through the Partneship for Aflatoxin Control in Africa (PACA), the ECOWAS Commission and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are organizing a regional aflatoxin sampling and testing  protocol training for ECOWAS Member States from 12-13 December 2017 in Dakar, Sénégal. The training workshop will address challenges faced by member states such as high rejection of certificates, increasing reliability of laboratories, lack of harmonized protocols as well as limited standards that exist for aflatoxins in staple commodities.

Additionaly, we are pleased to share with you video links related to sampling agricultural commodities for mycotoxins by Drs. Tom Whitaker and Andrew Slate. Please watch the videos for your reference and as support documentation for the upcoming training. We hope you enjoy the videos.
