|Title:||Fumonisins in corn cultivars in the state of Sao Paulo|
|Abstract:||Twenty three samples, belonging to 19 corn cultivars with distinct types of germoplasms, endosperm and length of vegetative cycle, were analyzed for fumonisins B-1 and B-2. The cultivars were grown in experimental fields in three locations (Votuporanga, Ribeirao Preto and Capao Bonito) within the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, during the 97/98 crop. All samples were contaminated with fumonisins with concentrations ranging from 1.63 mug/g to 25.69 mug/g with an average of 5.61 mug/g for FB1 and from 0.38 mug/g to 8.60 mug/g with an average of 1.86 mug/g for FB2. In terms of fumonisins, these high levels put the coin cultivated in Sao Paulo among the most contaminated in the world reported to date.|
