Additional Information

Project Being Implemented by ICRISAT in Collaboration with: Institute for Agricultural Research (IAR), Nigerian Agricultural Seed Council (NASC), Centre for Dryland Agriculture of the Bayero University of Kano (CDA/BUK), Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi (FUAM), Green Sahel Agricultural and Rural Development Initiative (GSARDI), Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Women Farmers Advancement Network (WOFAN) and the Agricultural and Rural Development Authorities of Kebbi, Sokoto, Jigawa, Kano and Katsina.


This manual is conceived to support awareness raising campaigns of the groundnut value chain actors in and out of the States targeted for the implementation of the USAID funded Groundnut Technology Upscaling Project in Nigeria. It is a fall-out of two capacity development events of the project - Media Training and Training of Trainers Workshops organized by ICRISAT in Kano during the first six months of project implementation in Nigeria. In view of the focus of the groundnut technology upscaling project on ensuring that farmers produce and market groundnuts free of Aflatoxins, the manual provides the general and specific information on Aflatoxin contamination and its management at all stages of the groundnut value chain. Though considered to be a basic companion document for front-line officers of partner institutions of the groundnut technology project, it can also be used by other actors of the groundnut value chain. The Manual is laid out in two parts; while Part 1 provides general and specific information required for the understanding of Aflatoxin, Part 2 focuses on the management of Aflatoxins at all stages of the groundnut value chain.
