A culture medium was developed by incorporating fresh palm kernel extract to 2% agar for the detection of aflatoxigenic fungi. Further tests with isolates from different sources showed that yellow pigmentation, flourescence and aflatoxins were complementary on the medium thus obviating the need for a UV light in the screening process
