Mycotoxins in Plant Disease: Under the aegis of COST Action 835 ‘Agriculturally Important Toxigenic Fungi 1998-2003’, EU project (QLK 1-CT-1998-01380), and ISPP ‘Fusarium Committee’

There's an pressing have to extend our wisdom of either the character of the toxigenic fungi which are common on economically-important crops and the influence in their poisonous secondary metabolites on human future health. Informa­ tion concerning the construction of mycotoxins by way of plant pathogens, rather through species of Fusarium, Aspergillus and Penicillium, their incidence in contaminated vegetation, in addition to their function within the plant-pathogen interplay, for instance as virulence/pathogenicity components, is a pre-requisite for combating plant ailment and as a result for lowering the Ievels of mycotoxin illness.

Another asset is the favourable social consequences of a healthy and agreeable environment. The methods of treatment, re-use and disposal of wastewaters in a manner that does not bring about any appreciable alteration of the above characteristics thus acquire a greater importance than elsewhere. Particular care must thus be taken to avoid the occurrence of eutrophication or significant replenishment in waters used for recreational purposes. Greater attention must be dedicated to the advisability of removing a certain part of the suspended solids and floating substances than is the case with other seas, which are generally more turbid and thus less sensitive to the harmful effects of an aesthetic nature mentioned above.

With higher levels of zinc the chromate concentration can be reduced to between 5 to 20 mg/1 as C ^ O ß . Where no zinc is added, chromate concentrations increase to between 50 to 150 mg/1. Batch or intermittent bleed-off wastes may contain up to 500 mg/1 as C ^ O ß while continuous or semi-continuous bleed-off waters (where zinc additives are used) contain between 10 to 40 mg/1 as C ^ O - or between 7 to 27 mg/1 of hexavalent chromium ion. 5 mg/1 chromium. Physical, Chemical and Biochemical Properties Untreated cooling water spent bleed-off contain the most harmful and toxic hexavalent chromium ion.

Plating process wastes may contain up to 120 mg/1 of copper, brass mill wastes may be up to 400 mg/1, while other processes may lead to waste concentrations up to 50 mg/1 generally. Exceptions are copper wire mills (800 mg/1 average) 1000 mg/1 in silver plating. Total plant wastes usually contain 20 to 80 mg/1 of copper according to amounts of rinse waters. Continuous rinsing (following dipping) and stationary rinsing contain between 5 to 20 mg/1 of copper. Two major types of copper plating processes exist, namely: the alkaline cyanide process and the acid sulphate process.
