Rice grain is contaminated with various fungi depending on the storage condition. The present study was conducted to identify the possible contaminants of glutinous rice variety Aghoni bora. Aghoni Bora grain samples were collected from districts of Assam. Nine species of filamentous fungi from the genus Acremonium, Aspergillus, Chaetomium, Cladosporium, Gibellula, Paecilomyces and Penicillium were identified morphologically among which potential mycotoxin producers were also present.
