Harvest samples from across Europe show high levels of mycotoxins, particularly deoxynivalenol (DON), fusaric acid and fumonisin.
This is the case in areas where there was excessive rainfall during flowering and pollination or late-season rain after heat and drought stress. This situation occurred for grains and forages alike. This is according to the Alltech 2018 Harvest Analysis. The results were recently further explained by Dr. Max Hawkins, global technical support with the Alltech® Mycotoxin Management team, in a webinar, in cooperation with All About Feed.
