Latest Mycotoxin Survey and Resources

Mycocheck has recently conducted a survey of mycotoxin occurrence in bedding straw.  Bedding straw samples were sourced from across the UK to investigate this route of exposure to mycotoxins.

Summary of findings:

  • 80% of samples contained at least 1 mycotoxin.
  • 14% of samples were contaminated with at least 3 mycotoxins.
  • Deoxynivalenol (DON) was the most prevalent toxin, found in 63% of positive samples.

The findings of this survey were presented at the World Mycotoxin Conference 2019 in Belfast.  A copy of the poster can be downloaded below.
