AB  - Cereal seeds safety may be compromised by the presence of toxic contaminants, such as aflatoxins.
Besides being carcinogenic, they have other adverse health effects on humans and animals. In
this preliminary study, we used two non‑invasive optical techniques, optical fiber fluorescence
spectroscopy and multispectral imaging (MSI), for discrimination of maize seeds naturally
contaminated with aflatoxin B 1 (AFB 1 ) from the uncontaminated seeds. The AFB 1‑contaminated
seeds exhibited a red shift of the emission maximum position compared to the control samples.
Using linear discrimination analysis to analyse fluorescence data, classification accuracy of 100%
was obtained to discriminate uncontaminated and AFB 1‑contaminated seeds. The MSI analysis
combined with a normalized canonical discriminant analysis, provided spectral and spatial patterns
of the analysed seeds. The AFB 1‑contaminated seeds showed a 7.9 to 9.6‑fold increase in the seed
reflectance in the VIS region, and 10.4 and 12.2‑fold increase in the NIR spectral region, compared
with the uncontaminated seeds. Thus the MSI method classified successfully contaminated from
uncontaminated seeds with high accuracy. The results may have an impact on development of
spectroscopic non‑invasive methods for detection of AFs presence in seeds, providing valuable
information for the assessment of seed adulteration in the field of food forensics and food safety.

AB  - In Serbia, aspergillus ear rot caused by the disease pathogen Aspergillus parasiticus
(A. parasiticus) was first detected in 2012 under both field and storage conditions. Global climate
shifts, primarily warming, favour the contamination of maize with aflatoxins in temperate climates,
including Serbia. A five-year study (2012–2016) comprising of 46 A. parasiticus strains isolated from
maize kernels was performed to observe the morphological, molecular, pathogenic, and toxigenic
traits of this pathogen. The HPLC method was applied to evaluate mycotoxin concentrations in this
causal agent. The A. parasiticus isolates synthesised mainly aflatoxin AFB1 (84.78%). The percentage
of isolates synthesising aflatoxin AFG1 (15.22%) was considerably lower. Furthermore, the concen-
tration of AFG1 was higher than that of AFB1 in eight isolates. The polyphase approach, used to
characterise isolates, showed that they were A. parasiticus species. This identification was verified by
the multiplex RLFP-PCR detection method with the use of restriction enzymes. These results form an
excellent baseline for further studies with the aim of application in the production, processing, and
storage of cereal grains and seeds, and in technological processes to ensure the safe production of
food and feed.

AB  - The objective of the present study was to investigate the susceptibility of maize hybrids to the
natural mycotoxins contamination: aflatoxin total (AFLA), deoxynivalenol (DON),
zearalenon (ZEA) and fumonisins (FB). Hybrids were grown during two production years
(2019 and 2020) in two locations. Mycotoxin contamination of maize grains was evaluated in
five sweet maize hybrids. Contamination level of investigated hybrids of first cluster was
mainly by below average values of ZEA (all equal to zero) and DON. Hybrids PK4 (S) 2020,
PK6 (MS) 2020 and PK4 (MS) 2020 had below average values for AFLA, while remaining
treatments of this cluster have mostly elevated values of this mycotoxin. Contamination level
of investigated hybrids of second cluster mostly had increased values of mycotoxins ZEA
and DON and below average values of AFLA. Samples did not contain fumonisins.
Mycotoxin contamination were significantly affected by hybrids and years. We have
established that DON and ZEA levels were influenced by the environmental conditions.
There were no significant effects of location on the level of AFLA in the sweet maize
hybrids. The variation in the properties of mycotoxin content (DON) was significantly
influenced by hybrids, and there was no significance of hybrids x location interaction.
Differences were more expressed for the content of ZEA and AFLA compared to the content
of DON. Hybrid PK1 had the lowest content of DON, while it had the highest content of
ZEA. Mycotoxin analyses showed that in all tested hybrids, levels of AFLA, DON, ZEA and
FBs were below the maximum permissible levels stipulated by the legislation of the
European Union and the Republic of Serbia in maize intended for direct human consumption.
These results confirmed that the susceptibility of hybrids is one of the important risks, in addition to climatic factors, for the appearance of toxigenic fungi and their mycotoxins.
Genotype tolerance is very important as a preventive measure, which indicates that breeders
have to pay attention to it in sweet maize breeding programs.
AB  - Cilj ovog rada bio je da se prouči osteljivost hibrida kukuruza na prirodnu kontaminaciju
mikotoksinima (aflatoksin B1 (AFB1), deoksnivalenol (DON), zearalenol (ZEA) i fumonizini
(FB)). Hibrdi su gajeni tokom dve proizvodne godine (2019. i 2020) u dve lokacije.
Kontaminacija zrna kukuruza mikotoksinima ispitivana je na pet hibrida kukuruza šećerca. Nivo
kontaminacije proučavanih hibrida prvog klastera bio je uglavnom ispod prosečnih vrednosti
ZEA (sve vrednosti su bile nula) i DON. Vrednosti AFLA kod hibrida PK4 (S) 2020, PK6 (MS)
2020 i PK4 (MS) 2020 su bile ispod prosečne vrednosti, dok su vrednosti ovog mikotoksina bile
više od prosečnih vrednosti za ostale tretmane ovog klastera. Nivoi kontaminacije proučavanih
hibrida drugog klastera su uglavnom bili viši za mikotoksine ZEA i DON i niži za AFLA.
Fumnonizni nisu utrvđreni u uzorcima. Na kontaminaciju mikotoksinima značajno su uticali
hibiridi i godine. Utvrđeno je da su uslovi sredine uticali na nivoe DON i ZEA. Lokacija nije
značajno uticala na nivo AFLA kod hibrida kukuruza šećerca. Hibridi su značajno uticali na
variranje sadržaja mikotoksina (DON), dok hibrid × lokacija interakcija nije bila značajna.
Razlike su bile izraženije za sadržaj ZEA i ALFA nego za sadržaj DON. Najniži sadržaj DON
utvrđen je kod hibrida PK1, kod koga je sadržaj ZEA bio najviši. Analize mikotoksina pokazuju
da su nivoi AFLA, DON, ZEA i FB u svim ispitivanim hibridima bili ispod maksimalno
dozvoljenih nivoa koji su propisani zankonima Evropske Unije i Republike Srbije za kukuruz
koji je namenjen za direktnu ljudsku konzumaciju. Ovi rezultati potvrđuju da je osetljivost
hibrida jedan od važnih rizika pored klimatskih faktora za pojavu toksigenih gljiva i njihovih
mikotoksima. Tolerantnost genotipa je veoma važna preventivna mera, na koju oplemenjivači
moraju da obrate pažnju u programima oplemenjivanja kukuruza šećerca.

AB  - During the 2014-2017 period, wheat samples were collected from discoloured spikes affected by Fusarium head blight (FHB) from 20 locations in Serbia. After isolation, fungi were cultivated on potato dextrose agar (PDA) at 25oC for 7 days. Based on the in situ identification on PDA, 36 isolates of the section Liseola were selected for further analyses. The pathogenicity of all isolates was confirmed on wheat leaves. The virulence of isolates was determined by measuring the lengths of spots formed at the inoculation leaf site. In order to prove the presence of the species Fusarium verticillioides, a pair of primers FV-F2/FV-R was used. This pair of primers amplifies the sequence of the gaoB gene, and it proved to be specific for the stated species. Moreover, for the same purpose, a pair of primers VER1-VER2 based on the calmodulin partial gene was used. The reference isolate RBG 1603 Q27 was used as a positive control. The pair of primers VER1-VER2 produced a band of the expected size - 578 bp in 18 isolates, while using FV-F2/FV-R, a 370bp long band confirmed the presence of F. verticillioides in 16 samples. Sixteen out of 18 isolates verified with VER1-VER2 were also identified as F. verticillioides with FV-FS/FV-R. No amplification was observed in a negative control.
AB  - Tokom perioda od 2014. do 2017. godine sakupljani su uzorci pšenice sa fuzarioznih klasova sa 20 lokacija u Srbiji.

AB  - Morphological traits are the earliest used markers in germplasm characterization, but their application may be difficult due to the presence of recessive homozygous alleles and their low frequency. Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers are widely used for estimation of genetic diversity within different species, due to their reproducibility, informativeness co-dominant and multi-allelic nature. They are also most effective for evaluation and selection of plant material, as well as assessment of genetic variability and relatedness of maize inbred lines. The aim of our work was to evaluate genetic diversity of maize inbred lines by SSR markers and compare results with their pedigre information. Seventeen polymorphic SSR markers were used to characterized 23 maize inbred lines that belong to diferent breeding programs. A total number of detected alleles was 78 and varied between two to nine, with an average of 4.6 alleles per marker. Based on presence or absence of alleles in each sample coefficient of similarity was calculated by Jaccard in NTSYSpc2 program package, version 2.1. The highest value (0.88) of genetic similarity was calculated between L21 and L22, while the lowest value (0.18) was found between inbred lines L3/L16 and L15/L20. Genetic similarity matrix was used to construct dendrogram by UPGMA (Unweighted Pair Group Method with Arithmetic Mean) method. Dendrogram analysis grouped maize inbred lines in one large cluster with 21 analyzed genotypes and one smaller cluster with two lines. Genetic heterogeneity betweean inbred lines detected by selected set of SSR markers, makes them a good choice for genetic diversity analysis and planning maize breeding programs.

AB  - Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is a secondary grain crop in Serbia used commercially for animal feed, seed, and human food applications. The production of barley in the 2016 to 2017 growing season reached a record yield of almost 400,000 metric tons (USDA 2017). Aspergillus contamination has been rare in the agroecological conditions of cereal-growing areas in Serbia. Changes in climatic factors, such as occurrence of high temperatures and prolonged droughts, increased frequency of Aspergillus spp. Species Aspergillus parasiticus was isolated from maize grain for the first time in Serbia in 2012 and from wheat grains in 2017 (Nikolic et al. 2018). We hypothesized that these pathogens can also be present in barley fields in Serbia. Barley spikes exhibiting bleaching were sampled at the beginning of June 2017 grown in northern Serbia. In severe infections, barley spikes get a dry look with awns that stand upright and firm. The incidence of the disease of the bleached spiked in the field was 15 to 20%. From each representative sample, 100 shriveled grains were collected. After surface sterilization with bleach/distilled water 1:3, 100 grains per sample (10 per Petri dish) were placed on potato dextrose agar and incubated at 25°C for 7 days. After isolation, 50% of isolates were identified as Alternaria spp., 20% as Fusarium spp., approximately 15% as Aspergillus spp. In order to reliably identify individual species of fungi, the fragments of colonies were transferred to malt extract agar (MEA) and Czapek yeast agar (CYA) and incubated in the dark for 7 days. The fungal colonies were dark green. The reverse side was pale yellow. The average colony diameter was 65 mm. Conidia were spherical and rough with thick walls. The average size of conidia was 5.1 µm. Colonies were floccose and thin on MEA and CYA. Based on growth and morphological characteristics, isolates were determined as A. parasiticus (Pitt and Hocking 2009). Molecular detection of Aspergillus species was done by using PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the aflR-aflJ (genes for aflatoxin biosynthesis) intergenic spacer. The restriction enzyme BglII was able to cut the PCR product of A. parasiticus at one restriction site, resulting in two fragments of 363 and 311 bp (El Khoury et al. 2011). A. parasiticus CBS 100926 was used as a reference isolate. The pathogenicity of 20 isolates was verified on a group of 20 randomly selected spikes in four replicates (Mesterházy et al. 1999). A 7-day-old culture of each isolate was used for the preparation of the spore suspension (1 × 10⁶ spores/ml). Inoculation was carried out after 50% of plants reached the anthesis stage. Groups of 20 selected spikes were sprayed from all sides with 20 ml of fungal spore suspension. Control spikes were inoculated by applying an equal amount of sterile distilled water. The infection rate was estimated after 3 weeks on a 1 to 7 scale, with 1 = 0 to 5%, 2 = 5 to 15%, 3 = 15 to 30%, 4 = 30 to 50%, 5 = 50 to 75%, 6 = 75 to 90%, and 7 = 90 to 100% infected spike area. The average infection rate was 3.2. The pathogen was reisolated from the inoculated spikes and identified as A. parasiticus, with the aim to confirm Koch’s postulates. Developed symptoms were similar to those observed on spikes collected from the field. Control spikes did not show any symptoms of the disease. These results confirmed the pathogenicity of A. parasiticus on H. vulgare. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the occurrence of A. parasiticus on barley grain in Serbia. Because A. parasiticus is known to be a severe aflatoxin producer and climatic changes can increase the frequency of this fungus, further studies are necessary to improve strategies for food safety and quality.

AB  - In the course of four-year studies (2013-2016), the species Aspergillus parasiticus was identified in Serbia for the first time as a causal agent of aspergillus kernel and ear rot in both fields and storages. In order to examine the distribution and diversity of this species, the study of morphological, pathogenic, molecular and toxigenic properties of 48 isolates of this species selected from maize kernels was carried out. Studies of macroscopic morphological traits of isolates showed that biodiversity of observed isolates was low. Colonies of the isolates formed on PDA the abundant dark green, dense cottony mycelium coating. All isolates of A. parasiticus formed unicellular denticulate conidia on MEA. The diameter of conidia of observed isolates varied from 4.08μm to 6.86μm.Two factorial analysis of variance showed that the effects of interactions of studied isolates, light regime and temperatures (p<0.01) on daily growth of the colony diameters were statistically significant. The pathogenicity test pointed out that all observed isolates of A. parasiticus were pathogens of maize ears, as well as that there was divergence in the virulence expression.The comparison of concentrations of synthesised mycotoxins in isolates obtained by ELISA showed a statistically highly significant positive correlation between potential to produce AFB1 and AFLA in tested isolates (r=0,66 μm).The observed isolates A. parasiticus that synthesised aflatoxins (50%) mostly synthesised AFB1 (84.78%), while the number of isolates that synthesised AFG1 was significantly lower (15.22%). However, it was established that eight isolates synthesised AFG1 at higher concentrations than AFB1. Mycotoxin concentrations in A. parasiticusisolates were compared by using the results obtained by the HPLC method. The comparison indicated that there was a highly statistically positive correlation between synthesised concentrations of AFB1 and AFG1 (r=0.82 μm), as well as between AFB2 and AFG2 (r=0.63 μm).The identity of all isolates previously characterised on the basis of morphological, ecological and toxigenic properties as species A. parasiticus was confirmed by the multiplex PCR detection method. Distinguishing between species A. parasiticus and morphologically similar species A. flavus was enabled by the application of the RFLP-PCR method, using restriction enzymes. This was also the first identification of this pathogenic species at the molecular level in Serbia.
AB  - U toku četvorogodišnjih ispitivanja (2013-2016) identifikovana je, po prvi put u Srbiji, vrsta Asperigillus parasiticus kao prouzrokovač aspergilozne truleži zrna i klipa kukuruza u polju i skladištima. Sa ciljem da se ispita rasprostranjenost i diverzitet ove vrste obavljena su proučavanja morfoloških, patogenih, molekularnih, odgajivačkih i toksigenih svojstava 46 odabranih izolata ove vrste poreklom sa zrna kukuruza. Ispitivanjem makroskopskih morfoloških karakteristika izolata ukazano je na mali biodiverzitet proučavanih izolata. Kolonije izolata na PDA hranljivoj podlozi formirale su obilnu tamnozelenu, gustu prevlaku od micelije gljive, pamučastog izgleda. Svi izolati A. parasiticus obrazuju jednoćelijske, nazubljene konidije na MEA hranljivoj podlozi. Prečnik konidija ispitivanih izolata varirao je od 4,08μm do 6,86μm. Dvofaktorska analiza varijanse pokazala je statistički značajan uticaj interakcije ispitivanih izolata, svetlosnog režima i temperature (p<0.01) na dnevni porast prečnika kolonija. Test patogenosti ukazao je da su svi ispitivani izolati A. parasiticus patogeni na klipu kukuruza, kao i da postoji divergentnost u ispoljavanju virulentnosti. Poređenjem koncentracija sintetisanih mikotoksina kod izolata dobijenih Elisa testom, pokazali su da postoji statistički visoko značajna pozitivna korelacija između potencijala produkcije AFB1 i AFLA kod ispitivanih izolata (r=0,66 μm). Ispitivani izolati A.parasiticus koji su sintetisali aflatoksine (50%) su u najvećem procentu sintetisali AFB1 (84,78%), dok je procenat izolata koji su sintetisali AFG1 bila znatno manja (15,22%). Međutim, utvrđeno je osam izolata koji su sintetisali AFG1 u višim koncentracijama, u odnosu na AFB1. Poređenjem koncentracija mikotoksina kod izolata A. parasiticus, na osnovu rezultata HPLC metode, uočeno je da postoji visoko statistički značajna pozitivna korelacija između sintetisanih koncentracija AFB1 i AFG1 (r=0,82 μm), kao i između AFB2 i AFG2 (r=0,63 μm). Multiplex PCR detekcijom potvrđen je identitet svih izolata prethodno okarakterisanih na osnovu morfoloških, ekoloških, odgajivačkih i toksigenih karakteristika kao vrsta A. parasiticus. Primenom RFLP-PCR metode korišćenjem restrikcionih enzima, omogućeno je razlikovanje vrste A. parasiticus od morfološki slične vrste A. flavus, što je ujedno i prva identifikacija ove patogene vrste na molekularnom nivou u Srbiji.

The pathogenicity test pointed out that all observed isolates of A. parasiticus were pathogens of maize ears, as well as that there was divergence in the virulence expression.The comparison of concentrations of synthesised mycotoxins in isolates obtained by ELISA showed a statistically highly significant positive correlation between potential to produce AFB1 and AFLA in tested isolates (r=0,66 μm).The observed isolates A. parasiticus that synthesised aflatoxins (50%) mostly synthesised AFB1 (84.78%), while the number of isolates that synthesised AFG1 was significantly lower (15.22%). However, it was established that eight isolates synthesised AFG1 at higher concentrations than AFB1. Mycotoxin concentrations in A. parasiticusisolates were compared by using the results obtained by the HPLC method. The comparison indicated that there was a highly statistically positive correlation between synthesised concentrations of AFB1 and AFG1 (r=0.82 μm), as well as between AFB2 and AFG2 (r=0.63 μm).The identity of all isolates previously characterised on the basis of morphological, ecological and toxigenic properties as species A. parasiticus was confirmed by the multiplex PCR detection method. Distinguishing between species A. parasiticus and morphologically similar species A. flavus was enabled by the application of the RFLP-PCR method, using restriction enzymes. This was also the first identification of this pathogenic species at the molecular level in Serbia.

Studies of macroscopic morphological traits of isolates showed that biodiversity of observed isolates was low. Colonies of the isolates formed on PDA the abundant dark green, dense cottony mycelium coating. All isolates of A. parasiticus formed unicellular denticulate conidia on MEA.

AB  - Agroecological and climatic conditions in Serbia greatly affected the development of toxigenic fungi and occurrence of mycotoxins in the maize. The presence of fungal toxigenic Aspergillus and Fusarium species and levels of aflatoxin B 1 (AFB 1) and sum of fumonisins B 1 , B 2 and B 3 (FBs) were established in 127 maize kernel samples harvested during 2012 (37 samples) and 2013 (90 samples). The periods of silking and grain filling of the maize in 2012 in comparison to 2013 were characterised with extremely dry spells, with high temperatures and low precipitation sums. The mean incidences of A. flavus and F. verticillioides were 50.4 and 11.7% in 2012 and 18.9 and 33.4% in 2013, respectively. According to the regulations of the World Health Organisation, unacceptable levels of AFB 1 (>20 μg kg-1) and FBs (>2000 μg kg-1) were established in the 30.6 and 24.1% samples of 2012 and 16.7 and 40% maize kernel samples of 2013, respectively. It can be concluded that high temperatures and low precipitation sums in 2012 favoured the development of A. flavus affecting the high level of AFB 1 , in comparison with F. verticillioides and the production of FBs. There was no positive correlation between the incidences of A. flavus and F. verticillioides, while a statistically significant positive correlation has been found between AFB 1 and FBs levels, in both investigated years (2012-2013). This indicates that the mycotoxin production depended more on weather conditions than on the distribution of corresponding toxigenic fungal species.

Na osnovu dobijenih rezultata zaključeno je da su visoke temperature i niske količine padavina u 2012. godini uslovile značajno veću učestalost A. flavus i visoku produkciju AFB1 u poredjenju sa vrstom F. verticillioides i produkcijom FBs. U obe ispitivane godine (2012-2013), između učestalosti A. flavus i F. verticillioides nije ustanovljena pozitivna korelacija, dok je statistički značajna pozitivna korelacija ustanovljena između nivoa AFB1 i FBs. Ovo ukazuje da produkcija mikotoksina je više zavisna od vremenskih uslova u odnosu na distribuciju toksigenih vrsta gljiva.

AB  - The species of the genus Aspergillus, A. flavus and A. parasiticus, are the most aflatoxin-producing fungi. All previous studies carried out under the production conditions of Serbia showed no presence of A. parasiticus on wheat kernel. On the basis of changes in climatic factors, such as occurrence of high temperatures and prolonged droughts, which favour increased frequency of Aspergillus spp., we assumed that this pathogen can also be present in Serbia. The significance of direct losses as a consequence of wheat kernel infection, as well as potential contamination with aflatoxins, have pointed out to the need to determine the presence of toxigenic potential of A. flavus and A. parasiticus isolates originating from Serbia. For that purpose, wheat kernel samples were collected in nine locations. According to morphological, toxicological and molecular traits of isolated fungi, the presence of A. flavus and A. parasiticus was confirmed. This is the first time that A. parasiticus was identified on wheat under climatic conditions in Serbia. This study indicates that these pathogens may be a potential danger in wheat production in the region of Serbia. This danger will be much more certain if global climatic changes continue as they will provide more intensive development of these pathogens.

AB  - Maize is considered one of the most susceptible crops to mycotoxins worldwide. Compared to other mycotoxins, the greatest attention has been paid to aflatoxins, due to their potential carcinogenicity and due to significant and longstanding problems they can cause in humans and animals. A. flavus and A. parasiticus produce aflatoxins in many economically significant crops in both fields and storages. Because of the potential aflatoxin contamination of maize grain, the toxigenic potential of A. flavus and A. parasiticus isolates, originating from Serbia, was tested in the present study. Furthermore, various applied methods for detection of these mycotoxins were compared in the study. Cultural, serological and analytical methods for the detection of mycotoxins were compared in the course of the experiment by the direct extraction of aflatoxins from the nutrient medium. The cultural methods for the detection of aflatoxin production were applied to 20 isolates of A. flavus (MRIZP Af18-20) and A. parasiticus (MRIZP Ap1-17). These methods are based on the yellow pigment formation in mycelia and nutrition media, occurrence of fluorescence on PDA (potato dextrose agar), agar containing β-cyclodextrine (CD-PDA), as well as on the red pigment formation after adding ammonium hydroxide to the existing medium. The ELISA was used to check quantitative and qualitative analyses of total aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2) while the HPLC method was applied to establish ability of isolates to synthesize aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2. The yellow pigment formation, fluorescence and colony color changes of isolates into red, as a proof of toxigenicity of isolates, were confirmed in all cases by ELISA. A high potential of total aflatoxin production was determined in the majority of observed isolates. The ability of A. parasiticus isolates to synthesize aflatoxins G1 and G2 was confirmed by the HPLC method. This was essential for a better understanding of the key role of the suitability of cultural methods for preliminary evaluation of a large number of isolates.

abstract = "Maize is considered one of the most susceptible crops to mycotoxins worldwide. Compared to other mycotoxins, the greatest attention has been paid to aflatoxins, due to their potential carcinogenicity and due to significant and longstanding problems they can cause in humans and animals. A. flavus and A. parasiticus produce aflatoxins in many economically significant crops in both fields and storages. Because of the potential aflatoxin contamination of maize grain, the toxigenic potential of A. flavus and A. parasiticus isolates, originating from Serbia, was tested in the present study. Furthermore, various applied methods for detection of these mycotoxins were compared in the study. Cultural, serological and analytical methods for the detection of mycotoxins were compared in the course of the experiment by the direct extraction of aflatoxins from the nutrient medium. The cultural methods for the detection of aflatoxin production were applied to 20 isolates of A. flavus (MRIZP Af18-20) and A. parasiticus (MRIZP Ap1-17). These methods are based on the yellow pigment formation in mycelia and nutrition media, occurrence of fluorescence on PDA (potato dextrose agar), agar containing β-cyclodextrine (CD-PDA), as well as on the red pigment formation after adding ammonium hydroxide to the existing medium. The ELISA was used to check quantitative and qualitative analyses of total aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1, G2) while the HPLC method was applied to establish ability of isolates to synthesize aflatoxins B1, B2, G1, G2. The yellow pigment formation, fluorescence and colony color changes of isolates into red, as a proof of toxigenicity of isolates, were confirmed in all cases by ELISA. A high potential of total aflatoxin production was determined in the majority of observed isolates. The ability of A. parasiticus isolates to synthesize aflatoxins G1 and G2 was confirmed by the HPLC method. This was essential for a better understanding of the key role of the suitability of cultural methods for preliminary evaluation of a large number of isolates. Our goal was to employ rapid biochemical approaches to prevent aflatoxin contamination of crops, and to reduce human and animal exposure to foodborne mycotoxins., Kukuruz se širom sveta smatra jednim od useva najpodložnijih za kontaminaciju mikotoksinima.

AB  - Species of the genus Aspergillus, section Flavi are facultative plant pathogens with the capability to contaminate primary agricultural products in the field, at harvest, in warehouses, and during processing. Infection is done through silk or injuries on maize ears. The objective of this study was to test pathogenicity of 25 A. parasiticus isolates on barley leaves. A parasiticus was isolated from maize kernels collected from 22 locations in Serbia during 2013-2015. Inoculation of the first barley leaf was done by the spore suspension of the fungus A. parasiticus. The spot sizes were statistically compared and this comparison showed that the isolate MRIZP 3930 was the least virulent. The isolate MRIZP 3819 was the most virulent seven days after inoculation and together with the isolate MRIZP 4265 was classified into the most aggressive group rated as 5. Pathogenicity was confirmed in all isolates.
AB  - Vrste roda Aspergillus sekcije Flavi su fakultativní biljni patogeni, čija se sposobnost ogleda u kontaminaciji primarnih poljoprivrednih proizvoda u polju, tokom berbe, u skladištu i tokom procesa prerade. Infekcija se obavlja preko svile ili oštećenja na klipu kukuruza. Cilj ovog rada bio je da se oceni patogenost 25 izolata A. parasiticus na listovima ječma. Kulture A. parasiticus su izolovane iz uzoraka zrna kukuruza koji su prikupljani sa 22 lokaliteta u Srbiji u periodu 2013-2015. godina. Inokulacija prvog lista ječma izvršena je pomoću suspenzije spora gljive A. parasiticus. Statističkim poređenjem dobijenih vrednosti veličina pega, pokazano je da je najmanje virulentan izolat MRIZP 3930. Izolat MRIZP 3819 se izvojio kao najvirulentniji posle 7 dana inokulacije, a zajedno s izolatom MRIZP 4265 je svrstan u najagresivniju grupu koja je kategorisana ocenom 5. Svi ispitivani izolati su potvrdili patogenost.
