Groundnuts are a major legume crop in the northern regions of Ghana, where they provide important nutrients for physical development. When handled improperly, however, groundnuts can be highly toxic to humans.
SPRING/Ghana is working to reduce aflatoxin contamination in groundnuts. As part of those efforts, we produced a video drama on aflatoxin for dissemination in SPRING project communities. The video covers the characteristics of aflatoxin contaminated groundnuts, possible effects of their consumption, and preventive measures to reduce contamination. This video is associated with the facilitator guide.
