Fusarium is mycelia fungi which can attack field crops and stored agricultural products. This fungus produces mycotoxins which can cause severe disease on cereal grains. The aim of this paper is to review the current status of fusarium, mycotoxins, diseases and control strategies of mycotoxins. First the paper describes about Fusarium mycotoxins and their Occurrence, Major mycotoxins produced by Fusarium, Diseases caused by Fusarium Biosynthesis of Fusarium mycotoxins Economical importance of Fusarium species and impacts of Fusarium mycotoxin on human and animal health. Then it presents about fusarium mycotoxins and also major mycotoxins produced by Fusarium species, such as trichothecens and fumonicins. The impacts of Fusarium mycotoxins on human and animal health and factor contributing for Fusarium invasion are described in detail. The step involved in the biosynthesis of Fusarium mycotoxins such as trichothecens and fumonicins is also outlined. Many control approaches for fusarium contamination such as chemical, biological, molecular and cultural practice explained briefly.

Keywords: Disease, Fungus, Fusarium, mycotoxin, Species.
