The prevalence of mycotoxins, toxic fungal metabolites found in almost all types of agricultural feedstuffs and grains, is a major concern with regards to feed contamination and presents a genuine risk to livestock animal production.

This infographic provides a global view of mycotoxin occurrence and main trends using data from the most recent annual Biomin Mycotoxin Survey.

Among the highlights of the survey are:

  • North America has registered the highest average values for zearalenone and fumonisins
  • Europe recorded the highest average concentration of deoxynivalenol, and
  • A typical agricultural commodity contains 30 different metabolites.

The Biomin Mycotoxin Survey constitutes the longest running and most comprehensive survey of its kind, using state-of-the-art analytic tools on more than six thousand samples taken from 64 countries worldwide.
