Adisseo’s 2018 Mycotoxin Survey found that almost half of corn and silage samples taken in the U.S. were contaminated with zearalenone (ZEN) and more than 70 percent were contaminated with deoxynivalenol (DON), making the 2018 U.S. corn harvest of medium quality in terms of mycotoxin contamination.
The 2018 NutriAd mycotoxin survey included 66 wheat samples from across Poland. The survey provided insight into the incidence of aflatoxin B 1 (AfB 1 ), zearalenone (ZEN), deoxynivalenol (DON), T-2 toxin/HT-2 toxin, fumonisin B 1 (FB 1 ), fumonisin B 2 (FB 2 ) and ochratoxin A (OTA).
