Özet

Figs like other agricultural products may include cancerogenic aflatoxin which is caused by Aspergillus type molds. Under the UV illumination, a large portion of the aflatoxin contaminated figs expose Bright Greenish Yellow Fluorescence (BGYF) in visible light spectrum. Using the fluorescence properties, the contaminated figs are visually detected and manually removed by workers.
