The average level of total B-trichothecenes (1534 μg/kg) was the highest detected in the past five years and according to our risk assessment presents a medium risk to sensitive animals. Levels of ZEA, BZEA, HT2 and FB1 were low and present a low risk for the animal health and performance.
Considering the mycotoxin levels detected and the likelihood of multiple mycotoxins (detected in 34% of samples), there is a greater probability of observing negative effects of the mycotoxicosis when wheat is used in levels above 50% of the ration.
Based on the results of this survey conducted by Adisseo, the 2020 wheat crop in the UK and Ireland is of variable quality and should not automatically be considered safe for inclusion in finished feed rations for all animal species.
