Mycotoxin producing potential of fungi associated with finger millet was investigated. Many species of Aspergillus elaborated aflatoxins, patulin, terreic acid and sterigmocystin, while species of Fusarium elaborated zearalenone, fusarinone-X, deoxynivalenol, nivalenol, diacetoxyscripenol, neosolanil and HT-2 toxins. Penicillium griseofulvum elaborated cyclopiazonic acid. The toxigenic potential of individual fungus varied.
