World Mycotoxin Survey: Impact 2020

Everything you need to know about upcoming mycotoxin threats to poultry, swine, ruminants and aquaculture worldwide based on recent results.

In Brief

In 2019, the globally most prevalent mycotoxins are FUM (70%) and DON (68%).

Full results of the full 2019 BIOMIN Mycotoxin Survey are based on:

  • 93543 analyses
  • conducted on 21287 finished feed and raw commodity samples
  • sourced from 86 countries
  • data from January to December 2019
In 2019, the globally most prevalent mycotoxins are FUM (70%) and DON (68%).

North America

Risk in North America is extreme. DON is one of the main concerns in all species in North America. It was present in 90% of finished feed and in 77% of cereal samples. Average of positives for DON in corn (maize) was quite high with 1011 ppb. DDGS (Dried distillers’ grains with solubles), a corn by-product, shows even higher contamination. 99% of samples tested positive for DON with an average of 6473 ppb.

Central America

Central America is at extreme risk. 96% of corn samples tested positive for FUM at an average of 3146 ppb and a maximum of 50843 ppb. Highest FUM concentration in a sample from Central America contained 304349 ppb.

 

South America

Corn in South America is highly contaminated with FUM at 89% and an average of positives of 3179 ppb. In wheat, DON is the main threat with 85% abundance and an average contamination of 1659 ppb. Risk is severe.

Europe

Risk in Europe is high to severe. The most prevalent mycotoxin is still DON, followed by FUM. Also ZEN still shows high abundance. 83% of corn samples tested positive for DON, followed by 73% for FUM. In cereals, 56% were positive for DON with an average of 1057 ppb and a concentration as high as 21980 ppb. DON thus poses the highest risk for livestock in Europe.

Asia Pacific

Asia: In China risk remains extreme mainly due to high Fusarium mycotoxin occurrence: FUM (94%), DON (93%) and ZEN (86%). In the same region, South Asia showed also extreme risk with Aflatoxin appearing in 82% of samples (average of positives 20 ppb).

In Oceania, risk of mycotoxin contamination is moderate.

Middle East

Fusarium toxins are most prevalent.  97% of finished feed samples tested positive for fumonisins and a maximum of 4324 ppb was found. Average concentrations are rather moderate.

Severe mycotoxin risk in the Middle East

Africa

In Sub-saharan Africa, risk is extreme. We see high abundance of aflatoxins in corn and finished feed. Main risk in whole Africa is due to deoxynivalenol followed by FUM. 77% of African corn samples were contaminated with more than 1 mycotoxin.
