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.
