KnowMycotoxins.com has launched a new page on its website featuring a Mycotoxin Short Course. The resource includes video lectures that address key challenges of identifying and dealing with mycotoxins: regulations, sampling, the most simple and sophisticated ways of testing.
Because of the poor quality of the 2009 U.S. corn crop, there is a focus on mycotoxins this year, according to site developers. The site developed by animal nutrition firm Alltech started in 2007 in English and has since added information in five more languages. It provides the animal feed industry information on overcoming challenges and repercussions of mycotoxins in animal feed.
