Abstract: 

In order to study the effect of A. flavus mycelia growing on the surface of pistachio kernels in aflatoxin production, one isolate of aflatoxigenic Aspergillus flavus was used in this research.
Pistachio kernels of tested cultivars were taken 20gr kernel lots with 3 replications, (completely randomized design) 20gr kernels in replications were surface sterilized and then inoculated with one ml of spore suspension (2x106 spores/ml) of A. flavus. Eight days after inoculation, colonized kernels were transferred to Erlenmeyer flasks and shaked vigoursly and then removed mycelia from the surface of kernels, completely. Aflatoxin content of samples was extracted by BF method and estimated by TLC and densitometer. Average of aflatoxin production in washed and nonwashed kernels was compared with t-student test. The results of this research indicated a significant difference in aflatoxin B1 production between washed and nonwashed kernels of pistachio cultivars. In other words, washing of mycelia and spores from surface of pistachio kernels could be reduced aflatoxin content of pistachio kernels ofdifferent cultivars.
