Mycotoxins, such as aflatoxins, trichothecenes, deoxynivalenol and zearalenone, are naturally produced by the fungi that can contaminate feed raw materials in the field and during storage. When ingested by animals, mycotoxins have a wide range of negative effects such as impaired reproduction, digestive disorders, carcinogenicity, and reduced performance.
About the survey
Each year since 2004, DSM has analysed a large number of feed samples from all around the world to understand and monitor contamination levels of the different mycotoxins in a variety of feed ingredients. This information is shared in the annual DSM World Mycotoxin Survey.
In 2022, over 27,000 samples were collected and analysed from 87 countries around the world, and the report is now available for you to download.
While the prevalence of mycotoxins remained fairly stable in 2022 from a global perspective, there was variation between regions, indicating different risk levels for different sectors across the world. Download the report and check the prevalence and risk levels in your country to ensure you are implementing the right mycotoxin management strategy.
