BIOMIN World Mycotoxin Survey Report 2018

This conclusion emerged from

  • more than 81936 analyses
  • conducted on 18424 finished feed and raw commodity samples
  • sourced from 79 countries
  • from January to December 2018.

Some Highlights

  • Co-contamination occurs frequently. 70% of all samples (analysed for at least two mycotoxins) contained more than one mycotoxin.
  • From 2017 to 2018, risk in South and South East Asia increased from severe to extreme. Risk is mainly based on occurrence of Aflafoxins and Fumonisins.
  • In North America, Deoxynivalenol is the most prevalent mycotoxin. It poses severe risk to swine and poultry production.
  • Deoxynivalenol is also the most abundant mycotoxin in Europe.
  • Risk in South and Central America is mainly based on the occurrence of Fumonisins but also Deoxynivalenol, which is very prevalent in cereals.
  • In Africa, Deoxynivalenol is very abundant, particularly in corn.
  • Corn samples from Middle East were to 100% contaminated with Fumonisins with an average concentration of 3101 ppb. 
  • More than 691 samples have been analysed with the Spectrum 380 method. The results show a high prevalence of emerging mycotoxins. Frequently found were for instance Aurofusarin, Moniliformin, Enniatin and more.
