The UK's Home Grown Cereals Authority has provided a grain sampling worksheet that details the most important points on mycotoxin sampling best practices into a single, at-a-glance publication.

The worksheet highlights a number of essential points to allow farmers to produce composite and representative samples for each individual bay, silo section or bin, even if this involves taking more than one sample from a single field. Growers are reminded they must also record a mycotoxin risk assessment score linked to each individual field on the grain passport, so this should be considered when storing grain.
